Flying the Lindbergh Line: Then & Now
(Transcontinental Air Transport's Historic Aviation Vision)
By Robert F. Kirk
Flying in the early 20th Century was dangerous business. Aircraft were made of sticks and cloth, and engines failed at alarming rates. Those who flew risked both accidents and death. However, some saw this stumbling attempt to master the skies as an opportunity to bring the human race forward.
They had a vision of stylish travel in the skies combining comfort, speed and profit. Such was the vision of Transcontinental Air Transport's Lindbergh Line that began the first scheduled coast-to-coast airline passenger service in 1929.
Relive the adventure of that time and travel with the author and his wife as they fly their Beechcraft Sierra along what remains today of the "Lindbergh Line."
