CHARLES A. LINDBERGH Rare Air Mail Service Contract signed twice by the Aviation hero. Contract signed twice: "Lindbergh" as Pilot, 1 page, 8½x7. Springfield, Illinois, 1926 June 2. An Air Mail Service Contract saying Lindbergh flew ship number 111 on Route number 2 southbound. Lindbergh served as chief pilot for the Contract Air Mail Route #2 (CAM-2) which he laid out himself. The Route provided mail service between St. Louis and Chicago, with stops in Peoria and Springfield. Charles A. Lindbergh (1902-1974) made the first solo, nonstop transatlantic flight from Roosevelt Field, Long Island to Le Bourget Field, Paris, France on May 20-21, 1927, flying his Ryan NYP Spirit of St. Louis aircraft. The flight took 33½ hours. Lindbergh was awarded the 1954 Pulitzer Prize for Biography for The Spirit of St. Louis. Although Lindbergh's later life was beset by tragedy - the kidnapping and murder of his infant son (1932) - and controversy - his opposition to U.S. preparations to enter World War II - "Lucky Lindy" remains among the greatest of American heroes. Toned. Horizontal fold. Paperclip stain at top center. Pencil marks (unknown hand) not affecting signatures. Lightly creased. read more...
