May 21 - 1927 - Charles Lindbergh Lands at Le Bourget

When Charles Lindbergh landed at Le Boruget airfield outside of Paris, he had accomplished a feat that seemed impossible when he took off from Roosevelt Field in New York the day before. This made him the most famous man in the world and a bona fide hero. His later life would be both more tragic and more troublesome, but in 1927 no one could touch Charles Lindbergh.
