PLOT SUMMARY: On May 20 1927 Charles Lindbergh made the first nonstop flight across the Atlantic from New York to Paris in the Spirit of St.Louis.
He flew without a radio, parachute or copilot even though the contest rules would have allowed all three.
It was a death-defying voyage in the days when air travel was still in its infancy and already had claimed the lives of multiple adventurers.
But the fearless “Lone Eagle” donned helmets and goggles, climbed into the cockpit, and soared into the air.
Flying through storms and battling unrelenting fatigue, the twenty five year old aviator conquered the journey spanning 3,610 miles.
The flight took thirty-three hours and twenty-nine minutes.
After circling the Eiffel Tower, Lindbergh triumphantly flew into the glow of lights at Le Bourget Airfield.
The lights of Paris cast a glow on the silver monoplane. No sooner had one foot touched the ground,
a human sea swept toward the lone flier. More than 150,000 Parisians were running toward him to greet the American hero.
Countless hands seized him his legs, his arms, his body and ardently carried him around. Thousands of voices mingled, filling the air.
It was a defining moment in aviation history and "Lucky Lindy," as he was called, became an instant international celebrity.
From beyond the sky, Lindbergh speaks and giving a fresh appreciation of the timeless lesson:
hard work and boundless determination lays the foundation for success and ultimately, for a meaningful contribution to mankind.
The legend began long before the pilot’s ascent into the air. When he visited one investor after another,
persuading them to support his venture. He painstakingly helped design an ideal plane, with a keen eye for detail.
Setting out equipment for the minimum so discarding every ounce of extra weight so that the plane could carry additional fuel.
Lindbergh toiled tirelessly and meticulously planning embodying the aviator’s quest for perfection.
This story of courage, endurance and triumph, depicting his conquest of the air, the legendary flight resonates powerful.
