Few historical events have excited multi-continental enthusiasm as much as the first successful transatlantic flight by Lindbergh. There are at least a dozen different bookends that commemorate the event, and the metaphor of ‘Viking Spirit’ is well captured on this set that shows the Viking Ship Sails with Lindebergh’s plane flying above. Very good condition.
