Charles Lindbergh & Wright Brothers

Charles Augustus Lindbergh (February 4, 1902 – August 26, 1974) (nicknamed Slim , Lucky Lindy , and The Lone Eagle ) was an American aviator, author, inventor, explorer, and social activist. The Wright brothers, Orville (August 19, 1871 – January 30, 1948) and Wilbur (April 16, 1867 – May 30, 1912), were two Americans credited with inventing and building the world's first successful airplane and making the first controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight, on December 17, 1903. In the two years afterward, the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. 1.3/5

That's the Wright Brothers' plane. At Kitty Hawk in 1903, Charles Lindbergh flew it fifteen miles on a thimbleful of corn oil. Single handedly won us the Civil War, it did.

The Loening Trophy is a perpetual trophy presented annually to the outstanding all- around collegiate aviation program in the nation.

Dr. Loening (first aeronautical engineer for the Wright Brothers), asked his friends and famous pilots, Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, and Navy Commander John Towers to assist him in judging the first competition.
