Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis

Historical Information

Charles Lindbergh grew up on a farm in Minnesota and was very interested in mechanical objects. After graduating from high school, Lindbergh spent two years at the University of Wisconsin. He left college to attend flight school and in 1924 he joined the army where he became the best pilot in his class.

On May 21, 1927, Lindbergh made the first solo, non-stop flight from New York to Paris in his plane, The Spirit of St. Louis. He continued to fly all over the world, becoming an unofficial ambassador of “good will.”
