Lindbergh Flies Across the Atlantic
(5/21/27) Charles Lindbergh was the first person to fly non-stop across the Atlantic, solo. The flight lasted for 33 hours and 30 minutes, and created a new world record for distance (3,614 miles). Lindbergh, who was a captain in the Army Reserve, won a $25,000 prize for being the first to achieve this goal. Lindbergh flew the Ryan NYP "Spirit of St. Louis."
