查尔斯.林白 (Charles Lindbergh) 于1927611日得到十字飞行荣誉勋章 (Distinguished Flying Cross)


19275月,林白驾驶他的单翼机圣路易精神号 (Spirit of St. Louis) ,从纽约飞到法国的巴黎。他花了33个半小时完成了这趟旅程。

Today it may not seem very impressive to fly from New York to Paris, but the first time it happened, it was extraordinary!

The man who made that first solo trans-Atlantic flight was Charles Lindbergh. In May 1927, he flew his monoplane, Spirit of St. Louis, from New York to Paris, France. It took him thirty-three and a half hours to make the trip.
