The Crew of the NC-4 after the Historic Flight

Lindbergh wasn't the first to fly across the Atlantic. In fact, more than 100 people made the journey before him. But he was the first to do it solo. The crew of the NC-4, shown here, completed the flight successfully, reaching Plymouth, England via Lisbon, Portugal on May 31, 1919.
