CHICAGO SUNDAY TRIBUNE, May 22, 1927
* 1st report on Lindbergh's famous flight
* He lands in Paris, France
The bold banner headline announces one of the more celebrated achievements of the early 20th century: "LINDBERGH IN PARIS" with a photo of him headed: "Hero of Epochal Flight". Subheads: "Lone U.S. Ace Flies Atlantic From New York" "Makes the Hop in 33 Hours 30 Minutes" and "Wild Rejoicing in Chicago at Flyer's Victory".
Charles Lindbergh became the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic. There are additional stories on this event on pages 2, 3 & 4.
This is the complete Sunday edition. Some chipping at the margins, more so to the bottom margin, an old tape mend at the right column of pg. 1 but causing no loss of readability.
A dramatic & displayable issue of this very historic event.
