Charles W. Lindberg Signed Photo Iwo Jima First Flag Raiser – COA JSAGo Back
Charles W. Lindberg was an American aviator, military officer, author, inventor, and activist. At the age of 25 in 1927, he went from obscurity as a U.S. Air Mail pilot to instantaneous world fame by winning the Orteig Prize for making a nonstop flight from New York City to Paris. Lindbergh covered the 33 1⁄2-hour, 3,600-statute-mile (5,800 km) flight alone in a purpose-built, single-engine Ryan monoplane, the Spirit of St. Louis. While the first non-stop transatlantic flight had been made 8 years earlier, this was the first solo transatlantic flight, the first transatlantic flight between two major city hubs, and the longest transatlantic flight by almost 2,000 miles. Thus it is widely considered a turning point in world history for the development of aviation.
Presented is a 3.5″ x 5″ black and white photo of the raising of the flag at Iwo Jima. Charles Lindberg signed the photo in black felt tip (“9-10”) with a lengthy inscription detailing the event.
