photograph of a DC-2 in PanAm markings was contributed by Mike Sparkman.
Although the Pan American Airways Corporation purchased almost two
dozen DC-2s they were
were almost all seconded to their
subsidiary divisions of PANAGRA, Compania Mexicana de
Aviacion (CMA), and China National Aviation Corporation
(CNAC). The exceptions were a
couple operated by their Alaska
Division. NC14271 went to CMA as XA-BJI. Go to
