Things we take for granted...

On this day in 1927 Charles Lindbergh took off from New York (carrying a kitten), aiming to fly to Paris in the City Of St Louis - the first solo transatlantic flight.

While not the first transatlantic flight, nor the first non-stop, Lindbergh did pioneer many of the features we take for granted in modern aircraft.
