New Exhibit at the Pacific Aviation Museum

The Pacific Aviation Museum in Pearl Harbor plans to open an exhibit on Pan American World Airways next month.

Artifacts and memorabilia from the airline's early years in 1930s and 1940s and from beginning of the jet age in the 1960s are expected to be featured in the displays.

Uniforms, original posters, signs, and navigation tools are among the items expected to be shown. The exhibit is designed to change and grow as more artifacts are contributed by friends of the now defunct airline.

The exhibit is scheduled to open on Oct. 22.

The Honolulu Community College website,, says Pan Am flew first commercial flight from the mainland to Hawaii in April 1935. The M-130 Flying boat made the trip in 17 hours and 14 minutes.

Relay for Life

The Annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life Koolauloa invites all community members to participate in the fight against cancer. BYUHSA will be there to help and support. The event is taking place Friday, May 27, at Hauula Elementary School from 5:30 p.m. until 6 a.m.

Give and Take

Aside from selling it, giving it away or trashing it, there has been very little that students could do to get rid of their stuff at the end of each semester/term—until now. Last semester, recent graduate Kelly Nelson organized and ran the very first BYUH Give And Take Event. On day one of the event, April 11, students brought their items, and on April 12, a line of people came to look at and “take” donated items. Nelson is working on organizing a Give And Take Event for the Spring Term. Instead of having a single day for donations, Nelson hopes to devote an entire week for the “give” portion of the event.
