Charles Lindbergh [Charles Lindbergh]
(1902–74) a US pilot who became the first person to fly across the Atlantic Ocean alone. His popular name was Lindy, and he was also known as the ‘Lone Eagle’. He flew from New York on 20 May 1927 and arrived in Paris 33½ hours later. His plane was called Spirit of St Louis. When he returned, he received the largest ↑parade ever given in New York. In 1932, his baby son was stolen and killed in a case that shocked America. Lindbergh wrote the story of his life, called The Spirit of St Louis, which won the 1954 ↑Pulitzer Prize.
