Historical Experiences, Inc.

It has been 90 years since Lucky Lindy made his historic flight and achieved a fame that has not been duplicated since. Charles Lindbergh not only piloted his plane across the trackless Atlantic, but he also was instrumental in helping design the Spirit of St. Louis which now hangs in the Air & Space Museum at the Smithsonian Institute. Even by today’s standards, Lindbergh’s ability to navigate by dead-reckoning from New York to Ireland and then to Paris is astounding. Entertain and education your patrons with the facts that surrounded this amazing feat and learn about the man whose life story is also the story of the development of the science of aviation, from the early canvas and wire airplanes to the Boeing 747. Call 507-381-0898 or go online at historicalexperiences.org to bring this educational and very entertaining program to you.
