THE FLIGHT OF THE CENTURY: Charles Lindbergh & the Rise of American Aviation
On May 20, 1927, an unknown and unassuming 25-year-old airmail pilot from rural Minnesota stunned the world by making the first nonstop transatlantic flight. Here, the author recreates the alternately tedious and terrifying 33-hour flight, the euphoric reaction to it on both sides of the Atlantic, and Lindbergh's central role in promoting the airline industry.
