The ground shook and my chest was beating as though bombs were falling nearby. It seemed impossible for life to exist while carrying that fire. What a fantastic experience it must have been-the first man alone looking down on another celestial body, like a god of space! - From a letter he wrote to Apollo 11 Commander Michael Collins.
During his 1938 visit to Germany, Reich Air Marshall Hermann Goering took Lindbergh and several other passengers on a flight aboard a new passenger plane. While airborne, Goering turned the controls over to Lindbergh, who was quite flattered.
