We’ve all been touched by the incredible welcome the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and different airport authorities have given us in the United States. In fact, before we started organizing the mission, we were afraid we wouldn’t find airports ready to welcome our unique aircraft. To our surprise, it was exactly the opposite! This has obliged us to better evaluate our needs and decide accordingly.

The most difficult choice was our third stopover, which was torn between St. Louis (MO), Atlanta (GA) and Nashville (TN). For various reasons, including one very historical one, St. Louis was elected as the official third stopover. The Spirit of St. Louis, piloted by Charles Lindbergh, was the first aircraft to successfully undertake the crossing of the Atlantic, New York to Paris, in 1927. The 3,600 mile flight (5’800 km) started from Roosevelt Field on New York’s Long Island to Le Bourget Field in Paris. Although the aircraft was built in San Diego, it got its name in honor of the St. Louis Raquette Club – who financed the construction of the aircraft – and because it was Lindbergh’s residence at the time.
