CAPT. LINDBERGH FLIES
NEW YORK TO PARIS.
Non-stop Flight Made in Exactly 33}
From New York to Paris by air has
been accomplished by an American.
The greatest feat in the history of
aviation ended on Le Bourget flying
field, France, at 10:21 Saturday (4:21
p. m. eastern standard time), when
Captain Charles A. Lindbergh, lone
American aviator, taxied to earth in
the flare of red beacons and huge
The youthful Lindbergh, who pilot-
ed a “blind” plane with a periscope,
navigated his way across the Atlan-
tic with a precision a veteran navi-
gator of great ocean vessels might
well envy. He landed in the midst
of a mighty crowd that gave him the
tremendous welcome his achievement
“Well, here we are,”s was what he
had to say. “I am very happy.”
Then a vast flood of spectators
broke over the field and surged
around the plane. Hundreds tried to
get the boy on their shoulders.
High in the air they carried him to
the administration buildings on Le
Bourget field, where Myron T. Her-
rick, as Amabassador of the airman’s
own country, and high officials of
France, together with French and
American notables, stammered their
Tired and sleepy, Lindbergh yet
had the grit to smile and wave his
arms in acknowledgment of the tri-
butes of the crowd. They bore him
into the building, where an official re-
ception committee awaited, but the
people wanted more of him and cheer-
ed wildly until Ambassador Herrick
brought ‘his helmet to the window and
exhibited a great bunch of flowers
that had been presented to the flier.
The reception was as short as it
decently could be, and within a few
minutes after landing, Lindbergh, was
threading his way toward Paris and
a bit of sleep.
The huge crowd was not satisfied
with a mere sight of their hero! It
almost swamped the plane and began
tearing strips of canvas and wood
from the frame. The police soon put
a stop to this, however, and with the
departure cof Lindbergh for Paris
something like order was restored.
Lindbergh made a beautiful landing,
headed due west with the ground
lights flashed on him. The crowd of
25,000 persons gave a great roar and
rushed forward. Dozens of persons
were swept off their feet in the wild
excitement to reach the wonderful
The crowd on the field was so large
that the police couldn’t hold them,
and there was some doubt whether
the aviator would be able to land, so
densely were they packed.
But Lindbergh circled twice slow-
ly. then settled down 200 yards west
of the main administration buildings.
The crowds surged around Lind-
bergh’s plane before he could get out
of the cockpit.
LINDBERGH'S OWN STORY OF THE
Capt. : Lindbergh slept soundly: for
eleven hours after reaching Ambassa--
dor Herrick’s residence in Paris and
on wakening ate a hearty breakfast.
To a group of newspaper men he told
the=story of his flight, as follows:
“The most dangerous thing of all
was that landing at Le Bourget,
bringing that ship down on a field
with all that crowd running. I had
more fear at that moment for the
welfare of our plane than at any oth-
er time in the whole flight.”
“The first part of the flight was
better and easier than any of us ex-
pected. The field in New York was
muddy, which made the take off a
little long, but we got away all right.
“All the way up the American coast
to. New Foundland we had uncom-
monly good weather, lots better than
we expected. But for the next 1,000
miles it could not have been much
worse for us.”
At this point the Ambassador re-
marked: “When Lindbergh says: ‘we,’
he means the ship and himself.”
All the way through except when
asked for a personal opinion of some-
thing the flier used the first person
plural in describing the long journey.
“Long after we got from land,” con-
tinued the aviator, “we ran into fog,
then into rain, then hail, some times
we flew not more than 10 feet above
the water, and the highest was 10,000
feet. We went up that high to try to
get above the storm, but the average
altitude the whole second 1,000 miles
of the flight was less than 100 feet.
“If we had known that the weather
would be as bad over the part of the
ocean as it turned out to be, we would
not have started, but once we got into
it, there wasn’t any use in turning
back; there wasn’t anything to do but
“We were mighty happy to see the
dawn which we ran into about 2
o'clock New York time. In the after-
noon we found Ireland, from the maps
we had and from what I read from
it I knew that England was a sort of
hilly, rolling country. France pretty
flat and Ireland inclined to be moun-
tainous. So when I saw pretty high
ridges I knew it was Ireland.”
He said he did not feel either hun-
gry or sleepy during the flight, and
as to his meals, “I ate about a sand-
wich and a half and drank about half
a glass of water. I kept the windows
open all the way, but, you see, our
ship, the way she is built, you are
protected from straight winds, and so
we didn’t have that discomfort.”
“When I got there, I wasn’t quite
sure that it was Le Bourget-—that’s
why flew around there several
minutes. I thought Le Bourget must
be a little farther on, but when they
turned on the field lights I figured
that must be the place. Then the
crowd began racing out there into the
lights and there wasn’t any more
doubt about it.”
