Anne and Charles Lindbergh 1933

Historical context

In 1933, Anne and Charles Lindbergh embarked on an ambitious flight in their aircraft, a Lockheed Model 8 Sirius named “Tingmissartoq”. This journey was part of an extensive and significant aerial survey mission across the North Atlantic, covering Greenland, Iceland, Europe, Russia and Asia.

The purpose of the journey was complex. It was not just an adventurous exploration, but also a serious scientific and mapping mission. The Lindberghs were tasked with mapping possible flight routes and collecting data that would be crucial for future transatlantic flights. Their work was crucial to the development of international air travel, particularly in determining flight routes for Pan American Airways.

The Lockheed Sirius “Tingmissartoq” was specially equipped for this journey. It was an amphibious aircraft that allowed the Lindberghs to land on both water and land, giving them greater flexibility in the difficult and varied terrain they encountered.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh played a crucial role on the voyage, not only as a supportive partner, but also as co-pilot and navigator. She meticulously documented their experiences and the challenges they faced, which she later wrote about in her book “Listen! The Wind”. This book provides a vivid account of their journey in 1933 and the difficulties they overcame, including the difficult weather conditions and the technical challenges of early aviation.

Anne and Charles Lindbergh’s journey in 1933 is a remarkable chapter in the history of aviation, demonstrating their contribution to the development of international air routes and their lasting legacy as pioneers of aviation.
