Charles Lindbergh was the first man to travel across the Atlantic by plane. His journey started in Wisconsin, where he was interested in engineering but took to the skies in 1923 for his first solo flight. Lindbergh was an adventurer, he enlisted in the army and was a barnstormer (dare devil). While serving, he was awarded the best pilot in his class. His daredevil past and hunger for adventure pulled him into a race between two other pilots to succeed in the first solo transatlantic flight. From New York to Paris, Lindbergh thundered through vicious storms, high gusts and an infinity of sea. On May 21, 1927 at 10:21 P.M., the headlines screamed Lindberghâ€™s name as the first to complete such a feat. Charles Lindbergh never was still, he looked to the sky and pursued every passion in life. â€œLiving in dreams of yesterday, we find ourselves still dreaming of impossible future conquests.â€?
