On may 21, 1927, Charles A. Lindbergh landed the “Spirit of St. Louis” at Le Bourget Airport in Paris. Flying non-stop from New York, the young American completed the first transatlantic solo flight without a stopover. @longines
timed the flight and added it to the list of air records.
90 years on and @longines
have created the Longines Lindbergh award. Awarded today in New York for the first time to Erik Lindbergh, the prize is granted to those who achieve a feat in their field, in the spirit of elegance and performance dear to @longines
