Charles Lindbergh Parade in D.C.

Charles Lindbergh with his plane, the Spirit of St. Louis

Here’s a great find from the Internet Archive. It’s film footage of a ticker tape parade in honor of Charles Lindbergh in 1927, after he successfully crossed the Atlantic in the Spirit of St. Louis.

Below is a great photo of him in front of his plane, The Spirit of St. Louis.
