Legendary actress Maureen O'Hara has joinMaureen O'Haraed the supporters of the Pan Am Documentary Project. In addition to a letter of support, Ms. O'Hara will be interviewed for the documentary film and Educational DVD.

Maureen O'Hara's association with Pan Am began after she married Charles Blair, a renown naval and air force aviator who also became a Pan Am pilot. After Captain Blair's long career with Pan Am, he "retired" by starting a flying boat service in the Virgin Islands in 1963. Antilles Air Boats Inc. served as an inter-island shuttle for many years. Then, on September 2, 1978, while Captain Blair was piloting a Grumman Goose from St. Croix to St. Thomas, his plane developed engine trouble and crashed. He was killed instantly.

Ms. O'Hara, who had been on Antilles Air Boat's board of directors, assumed the role of president of the company and successfully led the company for several years. Her love of Charlie Blair was equally matched by her tenacity and love for the airline business.
