Fact of the Day: Flying Charles

Charles Lindbergh went from being virtually unknown to worldwide famous for his non-stop flight alone from New York to France in his plane The Spirit of St. Louis. In 1927 he became the first person to be in the state of New York one day, and Paris the next.

  12. When WWII came Roosevelt wouldn't let Lindbergh enlist because the famous aviator was such a huge fan of Hitler.

  14. I know it's sad, but every time I think of Lindbergh, I think about the kidnapping and murder of his little son. It breaks my heart.
