Lindbergh Challenge



Charles Lindbergh’s 33 ½ hour excursion across the Atlantic on May 20, 1927 still captures our attention today as a triumph of the human spirit. The Lone Star Flight Museum will join schools and organizations across the country to pay tribute to the legendary aviator by accepting the Lindbergh Challenge! Members of the Civil Air Patrol and Boy Scouts will replicate his 33 ½ hour flight in one of the Museum’s Red Bird Simulators.  The general public is invited to cheer on participants and “fly along” with FREE flights in the Museum’s remaining flight simulators.
