Today, trans-Atlantic travel is taken for granted; however, when Charles Lindbergh made the first crossing in 1927 it was far from routine. Lindbergh's hero-making journey from New York to Paris was fraught with danger from the start. Ice, terrible weather, and fatigue all wore on the pilot as he navigated by dead reckoning. But the "Lone Eagle" persevered to become one of America's-and the world's-most well known aviators. Shown here is the "Spirit of St. Louis," Lindbergh's specially-built Ryan NYP. Battling the elements just above wave top, its J-5 Whirlwind powerplant is keeping up the dependable drum beat that got plane and pilot to its destination.
