Charles Lindbergh's solo flight over the Atlantic Ocean from Long Island, New York to Paris France made him a national hero. The importance of his flight was a demonstration of how aircraft no longer made the US isolated and unreachable because of its distance from Europe. His plane, the Spirit of St. Louis is displayed the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC.
