    There is another version of this item in 3467.06 - the other version is probably better quality.

    New York, United States of America (USA).

    M/S as Captain Charles A Lindbergh is helped into his suit for his flight and into the plane, door slides cross, and it takes off.
    Intertitle reads " Almost simultaneously, Capt Lindbergh sets from New York..."
    He nods to the crowd, smiles and poses. Night shot of the plane in the hangar. A man fills it with fuel by a funnel on top of the aircraft. Lindbergh is helped into his flying suit., door is shut, plane takes off. On the tree lined airfield, a crowd waits and the plane takes off.
