The nose cone, cockpit and port side of an Armstrong Whitworth AW650 Argosy on display at the Farnborough Airshow at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, September 1960.

Spirit of St Louis EPW018121 Featured Aircraft Print

Spirit of St Louis EPW018121

Charles Lindbergh and the Spirit of St Louis coming in to land at Croydon Aerodrome, 29th May 1927 having flown in from Brussels. Lindbergh had made his record-breaking single-handed flight across the Atlantic only nine days before. After landing he made an additional five minute demonstration flight circling the aerodrome. According to Lindbergh's flight log: "Took off before end of landing roll to avoid injuring crowd, which broke through police lines. Stabilizer damaged by pressure of crowd. Repaired at Croydon". This aerial photograph is well positioned to show the crowds watching his descent. From Croydon Lindbergh flew to Gosport where the Spirit of St Louis was disassembled and packed aboard a US cruiser for its trip home to the United States. From a copy negative.
