    This painting commemorates the grandure of spirit shown by Charles Lindbergh during his historic first solo flight across the Atlantic ocean , spanning New York and Pairis in 37-1/2 hours The scene is loking southward at sunset as he arrives over the french coastt near the town of Cherbourgh.

 I did a lot of research on this aircraft, having taken many pictures of the original and a reproduction in Florida. With this information I built a detailed model and posed it for that low angle shot. Someone said they saw some objects in the clouds, but hey, people are always saying that, aren't they?
