Charles A. Lindbergh’s Atlantic Flight

The first nonstop trans-Atlantic solo flight was achieved by 25-year-old Charles Augustus Lindbergh between May 20 and May 21, 1927. He departed from Roosevelt Field, Long Island, New York in a highly modified version of a Ryan M-2 strut-braced monoplane, Spirit of St.Louis, and landed 33.5 hours later at Le Bourget Field, near Paris.
