Lindbergh Flight a Marketing Windfall

August 26 – d. Charles Lindbergh, American aviator (Spirit of St. Louis) (b. 1902)

Charles Lindbergh "The life of an aviator seemed to me ideal. It involved skill. It brought adventure. It made use of the latest developments of science. Mechanical engineers were fettered to factories and drafting boards while pilots have the freedom of wind with the expanse of sky. There were times in an aeroplane when it seemed I had escaped mortality to look down on earth like a God." – Charles A. Lindbergh, 1927
