U.S. #1710 commemorates the 50th anniversary of Charles Lindbergh’s historic solo transatlantic flight from New York to Paris.
 
Charles A. Lindbergh (1902-74)
Since 1919, a New York City hotel owner, Raymond Orteig, had offered a $25,000 reward to the first pilot to fly non-stop across the Atlantic Ocean. Several pilots attempted to earn this prize, but all failed – some were injured or even killed.
 
In 1927, this unclaimed prize came to the attention of a talented young pilot, Charles A. Lindbergh. Lindbergh was an Army-trained pilot who flew the mail route between St. Louis and Chicago. He believed that the trip was possible with the right plane. Lindbergh convinced a group of St. Louis businessmen to give him the financial support he needed to build a special airplane of his own design. He named the plane the Spirit of St. Louis.
 
On May 20, 1927, at 7:52 A.M., Lindbergh took off in the Spirit of St. Louis from Roosevelt Field, located near New York City. Thirty-three-and-a-half hours later, he landed near Paris at Bourget Field. A huge crowd of people had gathered to greet Lindbergh and celebrate his historic accomplishment. Lindbergh’s daring flight made him an international celebrity and a respected authority on aviation.
