Lindbergh's Flight from N.Y. to Paris
On May 20-21, 1927, Charles A. Lindbergh flew alone, non-stop from New York to Paris, in a single-engine plane without parachute or radio. With this feat, Lindbergh became perhaps the greatest hero of the decade. Fox Movietone's sound film record of Lindbergh's take-off was the first popular sensation of sound film; it was soon augmented by coverage of his welcome in Washington on June 11th.
