I heard that Mike Vogel on the TV series Pan Am is a pilot in real life. True or false?
—Richard Cary, Simi, Calif.

True. In real life, Vogel pilots small planes, but in Pan Am, his character is the captain of the luxurious Pan Am clipper The Majestic. "There's a massive difference between a little Cessna and a 707," says, Vogel, 32. "Rarely do you get [a role] that sort of encompasses all of your loves in one great little package. Aviation has always been a huge part of my life, even as a young kid."
