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.
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.
