Made In America

Episode TJRMIA-104F


Join John Ratzenberger and the Made In America crew as we hit the open road in an aerodynamic trailer, pack our luxury leather luggage, and yearn for the soaring flying boats of old. First, we visit the Airstream factory in Jackson Center Ohio, where they make rivets and aluminum; a match made in heaven. At Hartmann Luggage in Lebanon, Tennessee, they've been crafting fine-tooled leather into the traveler's best friend for over 50 years. And a look back at the romantic time in the 30s and 40s isn't complete without mentioning Pan American Airway's fleet of flying boats, the Pan Am Clippers, that traveled the world.
