The Lindberghs with the Sirius

The Lindberghs with the Sirius
The Lindberghs bought this Sirius in 1929 and soon set a coast-to-coast speed record in it. But its most important flights were their two trans-global trips to survey airline routes. On the second trip, a Greenland Eskimo boy gave the plane its name, Tingmissartoq-"One who flies like a big bird."
