HISTORY AROUND THE CLOCK
10:22 in the Evening
May 21, 1927. Charles Lindbergh landed at Le Bourget airfield in Paris after becoming the first man to make a solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean. The 3,610-mi. flight took 33 hr. 29 1/2 min. By the time Lindbergh reached Paris, he was so tired and confused that he circled the Eiffel Tower in order to get his bearings. When the plane touched down at the airfield, 20,000 French people surged forward. Lindbergh later reported that the enthusiastic reception was the most dangerous part of the flight. Lindbergh was the 79th man to cross the Atlantic by air but the first to do it alone.
