Lindbergh Lands in Belize!!! Air travel comes to Belize...
On December 30, 1927 Belize was
visited by Col. Charles Lindbergh in his Ryan monoplane "The Spirit of St. Louis." Following his
triumphant transatlantic flight, Lindbergh set off on a goodwill tour of the Caribbean Basin. He flew from
St. Louis to Mexico City, then to Guatemala City and on to Belize.
In the first photo you can see "The Spirit of St. Louis" slipping into the wind on landing approach to the polo field at The Barracks. The Polo Club is on the left.
In the second photo, "The Spirit of St. Louis" is on the ground as welcoming crowds gather.
Tomorrow.... Lindbergh is welcomed by many Belizeans after he lands....
