American aviator, engineer and Pulitzer Prize winner Charles Lindbergh (1902- 1974) poses with the 'Spirit of St Louis,' the plane he used to make the first non-stop solo flight across the Atlantic, May 1927.
Charles Lindbergh (1902-1974) was an American pilot and the first man to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.Lindbergh's solo transatlantic flight in 1927 made him one of America's early celebrity heroes. He received a New York ticker-tape parade, and newspapers breathlessly covered his every move. I chose this photo because it shows his success as a pilot.
In 1927, a group of St. Louis businessmen gave financial backing to the first solo transatlantic flight from New York to Paris. The pilot was Charles Lindbergh and the plane was named “The Spirit of St. Louis.” www.stlarchs.org
Did you know::: Charles Lindbergh's secret family The Lindbergh Kidnapping Hoax. Visit: www.lindberghkidn... to read about his "other lives" in Germany between 2 sisters, fathering an additional 5 more children. Read how Lindbergh was also a Nazi sympathizer - it kinda makes you wonder how he was held so high in history - sure he flew around the world - but so did many other at that same time.
