two French pilots believed to have reached the coast of Canada ten days before Lindbergh’s Spirit of St Louis touched down in Paris in May 1927.


(1) 34 hours, that was the length of the flight. Two pilots (who can switch off and sleep when tired) is a big difference between a single pilot.

(2) They crashed. Landing the plane is part of the process. I know any landing you can walk away from is a good landing, but they didn’t walk away—they were killed.

“know any landing you can walk away from is a good landing”

I’ve never liked this saying. Doesn’t everyone realize planes cost money? How is crashing them a good thing, even if you walk away?
