Thanks to Jill Breitbarth who provided me with a clipping from the New York Times reporting on the crash of Pan Am 217 including a listing of the passengers on the flight. The original posting appeared on this blog several months ago.

Some of the names on the list have typos but it is the only comprehensive listing that I have seen of the passengers and crew on that ill-fated flight.

I will be pleased to correct any typos or inaccuracies if they are brought to my attention.

Corrections:

Franciska Buyers is listed as “Francisca BULLYARD – Stewardess”
Anita Englander is listed as “Anita Engeleand”
Eva Johanson is listed as “Eva Johnson”

    I had a friend aboard that flight. Anita Englander. Could there be a misspelling in the passenger listed as Engeleand? We both lived in Venezuela.
    Anita was on her way back to Venezuela after attending her son’s college graduation.
    I’ve never forgotten her……I never will.

  2. TJ says:

    Catherine, I am sure that your friend’s name was not spelled correctly……..and “Engeleand” is likely a reference to her.

  3. Vibeke says:

    The same can be said in the case of Eva Johanson. Her name is listed as Johnson.

  4. David Morrow says:

    I was a friend of passenger P. Guttman on Flight 217. His full name was Pablo Guttman, son of Hans Guttman, both of Caracas. He was a
    student at Clarkson College of Technology, Potsdam, New York and studying chemical engineering. An award in his name is given at
    Clarkson each year to an outstanding student in chemical engineering.

    Thank you for your excellent blog!

    Yo creo que estaremos vivos en esta tierra hasta que nos olviden
    y veo que ya pasado 40 años del accidentes hay amigos que todavia
    recuerdan a sus amigos. yo tenia 10 años y todavía me acuerdo del
    accidente y el avion llevaba correspondencia la cual se rescato porque estaba flotando y la cual entrega a sus destinatarios con la nota que fue rescatada del avion de Pan Am siniestrado a 5 minutos
    de Maiquetia. realmente no se las causas del accidente, seria
    por falta de gasolina ?

    Please guide me to the article listing the name of passengers. My grand pa was one of them and I still remember when this happened and my mom crying in my dad s arms. His name was Louis Philippe Lariviere. He was an aawesome grand pa and I missed all my life.

    Who decided my mother’s name was “Clemm”? What?

    She was Patricia Alice Norgan Haynes!

    Just the day or so before she asked a seven year old daughter of a friend of hers about the Christmas presents she had bought for her kids.

    Then six months later that little girl became my step-sister. We have a weird family. But not weird enough that a woman would be called “Clemm.”

    I am trying to see the humor, while typing through the tears… there is no set time for the healing the wounds of a child losing a parent. Even though I got a wrongful death settlement to pay for college, I still grieve. As noted at the bottom of this page.

  9. stephan jancke says:

    my father was on that air plane, I was ten years old at that time. He is listed as Jarcke, J. his correct name was Guenter Jancke.

  10. Juan says:

    My Mom, Gladys Delgado, had made reservations to take this flight back and spend Christmas in Venezuela, she missed it, saving her life, her family was at the airport waiting for her when the accident happened not knowing she was not in the plane. They have a lot of stories and they probably meet some of the other people family… I wonder if there is such as a reservation list for this flight? .

  11. Judy Geva says:

    David Morrow, Paul Guttman was my 1st Cousin.
    I still miss him so much.
    His tragedy became even worth when his brother was killed in 1985 by a private plane crashing into the ocean.

  12. Anna Koffer says:

    Dear David Morrow and Judy Geva, Hans Guttman was my father’s cousin – I knew him and Eva well.
    I live in London and can’t any more get any contact with Hans and Eva. I would be very grateful if you could let me know of any news about them. Best wishes Anna Koffer

    Iamthe husband of crewmember Heidi Caplan note correct spelling of her name

  14. Judy G. says:

    Dear Anna Koffer,
    I think I replied to you a while back.
    Unfortunately, Hans Passed away 4 yrs. ago.
    Eva is still alive – 93 yrs old. Still in Caracas.

    “Ambrey, M. – Stewardess” refers to Marianne Ambrey who was just minutes away from receiving “her wings” following this, her training flight. Marianne grew up in Ottawa, Canada, went to school in Ann Arbor, Michigan, then to San Francisco (where we met & became bf’s) then to Miami Stew School. She was 22.

    Curra Rafael, whose full name was Dr. Rafael Antonio Curra, was a Venezuelan scientist born in Ciudad Bolivar in 1934, a normalist teacher, and professor of biology and chemistry with honors at the Pedagogical Institute of Caracas. His research interests lead him to optain a master’s degree in Marine Zoology at UCLA and a PhD in Marine Morphology at the University of Edinburgh. He was a founding professor of the University of Oriente in Venezuela (UDO) and one of the pioneers in oceanographic studies in Venezuela. The library of the Oceanographic Institute of Venezuela – of which he was director at the time of his death – bears his name.

    Those who knew him in life attest to his great sensitivity and extraordinary human quality, as well as his great professional and intellectual capacity even at an very early age.

    Here you may see a a Rafael’s Photo taken a few month before his dead. He was 34 years old
