Charles Lindburgh and the Spirit of St. Louis

My dad sent me this link and if you have any interest in aviation history you really must watch the 4 individual videos at Airport & Aviation Appraisal's website. There is some really amazing film footage that probably has never been seen before and a tantalyzing tale of aviation bravery and skill. Despite all of Lindburgh's troubles and shortcomings in his later life, he was an amazing and trail-breaking aviator.

It seems that you have to close the page at the link and re-open it after each viewing to see the entire story but it is worth it to watch the entire story of this amazing effort from back in 1927. Get a fresh cup of coffee and sit back and be amazed at this interesting display of American engineering, aviation development and navigationg skills. It's worth it!
