Heroes and Heroines By Anna Wright As the 1920s began, the world of aviation was new to the United States. The invention of airplanes was fresh on the American scene, and both men and women found joy in the freedom of flight and the wonder of see their lives far below them. Two particular pilots, Amelia Earhart and Charles Lindbergh, left a lasting impression in aviation, as well as in the hearts of all Americans. Charles Lindbergh, a pilot from a small town in Minnesota, became the first person to make a nonstop solo flight across the Atlantic. Many had previously tried for this accomplishment that came along with a $25,000 reward, but on May 20, 1927, Lindbergh set off on a flight that turned him into a hero (not to mention $25,000 richer).
The First Transatlantic Flight The majority of people in their mid twenties today are either still in college, in graduate school, starting a job, or starting a family.

On May 21, 1927 Lindbergh took flight in what would eventually become the first non-stop flight across the Atlantic Ocean. Owens (1927) writes in his New York Times article: A sluggish grey monoplane lurched its way down Roosevelt Field, slowly gathering momentum. Inside sat a tall youngster, eyes glued to an instrument board or darting ahead for swift glances at the runway, his face drawn with the intensity of his purpose.
