Yes, it goes on and on my friend.
Some people started singing it not knowing what it was,
And they’ll continue singing it forever just because…”

May 21, 1927: Aviator Charles Lindbergh Lands in Paris
On this day in 1927, aviator Charles A. Lindbergh landed in Paris after completing the first solo flight across the Atlantic. He was only 25 years old.
On his flight aboard The Spirit of St. Louis, Lindbergh traveled over 3,600 miles in 33.5 hours. Upon his landing, a new aviation hero was born, and The Spirit of St. Louis attained legendary status. Lindbergh became the most famous private citizen on the earth, but he resisted fame. He hated the press but spent most of his life attracting publicity.
Read how Charles Lindbergh prepared for the flight to Paris with American Experience’s detailed history of The Spirit of St. Louis.
