The Spirit of St. Louis, piloted by Charles A. Lindbergh, made the first non-stop flight between New York and Paris on May 20-21, 1927 in 33 hours and 30 minutes. 1,000 pounds overweight, Lindbergh took off from Roosevelt Field, Long Island, NY on May 20th and his aircraft barely lifted off at the end of the runway missing a telephone pole by a mere 20 feet. At the end of 28 hours, he sighted the cost of Ireland and for the first time realized that he was on target for his goal, the airfield of Paris, France. While still miles away he sighted the glowing night-lights of Paris. Shortly after, he landed at Le Bourget Airfield to the acclaim of thousands awaiting him on the runway. At that moment, Lindbergh and the Spirit of St. Louis entered aviations hall of fame.
