Panoramic view inside the rear cockpit of the Lockheed Sirius Tingmissartoq. Upon returning from their transatlantic trip in late 1933, the Lindberghs donated the Tingmissartoq to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. It was displayed in the Hall of Ocean Life until 1955, when it was sent to the United States Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio. After deciding that the Lindberghs' plane did not really represent the Air Force, the Air Force Museum transferred it to the Smithsonian Institution's Air Museum, precursor to the National Air and Space Museum, in 1959.
