PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 22 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Famous Americans – Charles Lindbergh's Solo Transatlantic Flight. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

At 7:52 A.M., May 20, 1927 Charles Lindbergh gunned the engine of the "Spirit of St Louis" and aimed her down the dirt runway of Roosevelt Field, Long Island. Heavily laden with fuel, the plane bounced down the muddy field, gradually became airborne and barely cleared the telephone wires at the field's edge. The crowd of 500 thought they had witnessed a miracle. Thirty-three and one half-hours and 3,500 miles later he landed in Paris, the first to fly the Atlantic alone.

From the balcony of the American Embassy the following morning, he responded briefly and modestly to the persistent calls of the great crowd which had gathered. For hours after he retreated back inside, they shouted, clapped, and waved their hats and handkerchiefs. In the days that followed, his fame as a hero grew to unbelievable proportions as he took Europe by storm. The President of France pinned the Legion of Honor upon the lapel of his borrowed suit and thousands of messages poured in upon him.

When he came home to America aboard the USS Memphis, a majestic convoy of warships and aircraft escorted him up the Chesapeake and Potomac to WDC. President Coolidge welcomed him home and bestowed the Distinguished Flying Cross upon him. His NY reception was the wildest in the city's history as 4 million people lined the parade route and Mayor Jimmy Walker pinned NY’s Medal of Valor upon him.

His epic flight would become the one singular event which electrified the world and changed the whole course of history.
