Magazine Cover signed: "Charles A. Lindbergh/Chief Pilot", 10¾x14¾ framed to 17¼x21¾ overall.

Accompanied by the complete issue of the May 3, 1930, Mid-Week Pictorial, located in a pocket on verso of the frame. 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. After Anne Spencer Morrow (1906-2001) married Charles Augustus Lindbergh in 1929, two years after his historic flight, she became a companion aviator during the 1930s and wrote about many of their adventures. Signature lightly faded (still legible). Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition. Magazine worn and toned, otherwise, fine condition. Not framed in Gallery of History Style.
