THE NEW YORK TIMES, section 2 only, February 6, 1927
* Charles Lindbergh announces famous flight
Page E9 of this section has small and somewhat discrete headings: "May Try Flight To Paris" "Capt. Lindbergh of St. Louis Would Start Alone in Small Plane" (see) Coverage on Charles Lindbergh making his official plan to fly across the Atlantic Ocean solo. The small, inside page report is due to him not being nationally known at the time, over three months prior to his famous flight. If they only knew at the time here. This may be the first mention of Lindbergh in this famous newspaper title. Rare as such.
Other topics throughout. Complete section 2 only with all 20 pages, irregular along the spine, otherwise nice.
