The picture above is the famous Spirit of Saint Louis that Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic ocean. Fun Fact: just twenty four hours into this famous flight, Lindbergh's flight log showed that he began to see hallucinations of fog castles and other shapes.
Why Was he Famous?
Lindbergh was also known as a staunch conservationist; before his death in 1974, he also lived among the indigenous tribes in Africa and Philippines. He also helped procure land for the formation of Haleakala National Park in Hawaii.
Lindbergh was barred from serving from serving in the armed services after Pearl Harbour because Franklin Delano Roosevelt thought that he was an anti-semite and Nazi sympathizer.
