Charles Lindbergh Flies Solo Across Atlantic:
At 7:52 A.M.

Charles Lindbergh was the first man to fly across Atlantic ocean solo. Before the flight Lindbergh made the airplane as light as he could by carrying only a compass, a sextant, some maps, and several fuel tanks, and by replacing a pilot chair with a light weight wicker chair.
