Antilles Air Boats first ramp at St. Croix
Recently found these 2 slides on Ebay. N95467 arriving at Pan Am Pavilion ramp in Christiansted, St. Croix in 1967. (slide #17) The other taken by a passenger looking forward on approach to St. Thomas. (slide #29) Have not identified the pilot as yet, Any thoughts? Always nice to come across new photos.
