Abstract:

"On May 21, 1927, the twenty-five-year-old Charles Lindbergh flew his plane, Spirit of St. Louis, from New York to Paris and entered history as the first person to complete a nonstop solo flight across the Atlantic. This feat - born of Lindbergh's heroism, deep knowledge of aviation, and sheer strength of will - has long been considered one of the greatest adventures of the twentieth century and made Lindbergh a household name throughout the world." "As time passes and thousands routinely retrace his route daily, it is easy to lose sight of the true dimension of Lindbergh's achievement. Charles Lindbergh and the Spirit of St. Louis, written by Dominick Pisano and F. Robert van der Linden, two leading aviation historians and curators at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum, charts Lindbergh's career from youthful barn-stormer to outspoken public figure, focusing on his flight and the preparation for it. They stress the degree to which Lindbergh's achievement was grounded in his sophisticated grasp of aviation technology and his superb skills as a pilot." "Illustrated with newly taken color photographs of the plane - one of the most precious artifacts in the museum - and archival photographs, this book captures the excitement of the early, pioneering days of aviation."--Jacket.
