Question of the Day
Since I seem to be hunted down for my source ;-)...My previous 2 unformatted questions and my next 8 Question of the Day series will have questions...cogged word to word...from Hutchinson Encylopedia 2005 Home Edition..History/Music/Arts/Sports section..Any other info?

Here it is:-)

A quote by X

"The life of an aviator seemed to me ideal. It involved skill. It brought adventure. It made use of the latest developments of science. Mechanical engineers were fettered to factories and drafting boards while pilots have the freedom of wind with the expanse of sky. There were times in an aeroplane when it seemed I had escaped mortality to look down on earth like a God."

X got the prize from a New York City hotel owner Raymond Orteig for $25,000 for doing Y.Y then took 20 hours 21 minutes.X also invented an "artificial heart" between 1931 and 1935. He developed it for a French surgeon Alexis Carrel and biologist whose research included experiments in keeping organs alive outside the body. X was also nicknamed "Lone Eagle" apart from a more famous play on his name.

i think he was the first person to be featured on TIME as well, just another useless piece of trivia :P

yes he was the first to be featured on the cover of TIME.
Also, there was this famous "Lindbergh Baby mystery" where his infant son was kidnapped and later found dead. Read about it here:
