Product Description

Frame Size: 17" x 25" ..... autographed in ink on a First Day Cover by: Charles A. Lindbergh. Comes with a COA.

 

 On May 21, 1927, Charles A. Lindbergh completed the first solo nonstop transatlantic flight in history, flying his Ryan NYP “Spirit of St. Louis”3,610 miles between Roosevelt Field on Long Island, New York and Paris, France, in 33 hours, 30minutes. With this flight, Lindbergh won the $25,000 prize offered by New York hotel owner Raymond Orteig to the first aviator to fly an aircraft directly across the Atlantic between New York and Paris. When he landed at Le Bourget Field in Paris, Lindbergh became a world hero who would remain in the public eye for decades.The aftermath of the flight was the “Lindbergh boom” in aviation: aircraft industry stocks rose in value and interest in flying skyrocketed. Lindbergh’s subsequent U.S. tour in the “Spirit of St. Louis” demonstrated the potential of the airplane as a safe, reliable mode of transportation. Following the U.S. tour, Lindbergh took the aircraft on a goodwill flight to Central and South America, where flags of the countries he visited were painted on the cowling.“Spirit of St. Louis” was named in honor of Lindbergh’s supporters in St. Louis, Missouri, who paid for the aircraft. “NYP” is an acronym for “New York-Paris,” the object of the flight.
