May 20, 1927

Charles Lindbergh and "The Spirit of St. Louis"

Sometimes it's about the prize; but for Charles Lindbergh, it was to prove a point. He wanted to show the world that airplanes could safely fly from the US to Europe.

At 7:52 a.m. on the morning of May 20, 1927, over 500 on-lookers watched as Charles Lindbergh and "The Spirit of St. Louis" lefted off for Paris. Less than 34 hours later, Lindbergh made aviation history by completing the first non-stop transatlantic flight.
