Charles Lindbergh (1902-1974) was an American pilot and the first man to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

Lindbergh's solo transatlantic flight in 1927 made him one of America's early celebrity heroes. He received a New York ticker-tape parade, and newspapers breathlessly covered his every move.
