Sale Number 1215, Lot Number 2400, Flight CoversCharles A. Lindbergh, Charles A. LindberghCharles A. Lindbergh. American aviator who was first to fly non-stop across the Atlantic Ocean in Spirit of St. Louis, 2pp Autograph Letter Signed on illustrated stationery for the U.S. Grant Hotel in San Diego Cal., dated March 14, 1927, letter reads: "Dear Bruce, your letter of Mar. 8th arrived today. I agree with you that the Bellanca is probably the best plane of its type on the market to day, but there are points in favor of the Ryan also. Our ship will carry 450 gal of gasoline which will be in front of the pilot instead of behind as in the Bellanca. We are using the Clarke Y wing which has a record speaking for itself, and we are using a very slightly larger wing area. The plane will be streamlined much better than the present Ryan M1 and the weight empty is less than that of the Bellanca. We are building a 46 ft wing for the standard size of the fuselage. I do not intend to carry much extra equipment and, of course, no parachute. The course will be a straight line on a globe or a great circle on Mercators projection. We are working overtime here on construction but it is not definitely known when the ship will be ready to test. As ever, CA Lindbergh", the second piece of paper (undated but folds match and labelled "2" at top) reads "I have been watching certain developments in foreign affairs in the daily papers, which bring to mind what you said in St. Louis. Give my regards to everyone there. With best wishes to yourself and Phil, I remain, as ever, Charles A. Lindbergh. Will send some pictures soon"

VERY FINE. A PHENOMENAL LETTER WRITTEN AND SIGNED (TWICE) BY CHARLES LINDBERGH, SENT WHILE THE SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS WAS BEING BUILT AND DETAILING SOME OF THE SPECIFICATIONS AND ROUTE THE PLANE WOULD TAKE ON ITS HISTORIC FLIGHT. THE SECOND PAGE AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED FORESHADOWS LINDBERGH'S LESS SUCCESSFUL INVOLVEMENT IN FOREIGN AFFAIRS.

Lindbergh oversaw the construction of the Spirit of St. Louis at the Ryan plant in San Diego. He took off from San Diego on May 10, heading first to St. Louis and then to Roosevelt Field on Long Island. He departed on his historic solo trip across the Atlantic on May 20.
