Our fuels expert Ben Visser sent along a link to a really cool look back at a pivotal moment in aviation’s history. Win Perkins, a real estate appraiser who specializes in airport properties, has posted on his website a video he created of Charles Lindbergh’s famous and risky takeoff in the Spirit of St. Louis. According to Perkins, this is unlike any other presentation of the takeoff footage. Perkins said he “painstakingly assembled news footage from five cameras that filmed Lindbergh’s takeoff from Roosevelt Field, Long Island” and “mixed it with enhanced audio from the same newsreel sources.”
