Lindbergh-Tingmissartoq-157 242

Charles Lindbergh and his wife in their "Lockheed Sirius Plane", prepare to take-off from sea. In 1933, Lindbergh and his wife Ann Morrow, flew the Sirius to the Far East in a circumnavigation of the North Atlantic. In Anmagssalik, Greenland, the plane received a new name given by a local boy "Tingmissartoq" which means "one who flies like a bird". The Lindberghs continued through Europe to Moscow, then to Africa and across the South Atlantic to Brazil. The plane appeared in the sky over New York 19 December 1933, as the city turned out to greet the Lindbergh's. Anne Morrow Lindbergh wrote a best selling book about the trip "North to the Orient". / AFP PHOTO / -
