Monument and Plaque and That's It

For those interested in flight, they may want to take the short drive to see the monument and read the plaque. For others, don't waste time.

I was here on business and being a pilot it was cool to see this! Also the airport itself has a large amount of crop dusters sitting on the ramp. A lot of cool airplanes to look at!

Although there is not much to do in Americus, visiting the Charles Lindbergh Monument is interesting. Make sure you go during operating hours or everything is closed.

We actually found the monument by mistake. There was a sign that there was an historical marker, but we had trouble finding it. Finally went toward the local airport and found the monument and inscription regarding Charles Lindbergh. My husband being a pilot himself found it very interesting. It's too bad they don't promote it more.

Unless we missed something elsewhere on the grounds, all there is to see here is a statue of Lindbergh in a tiny "park" (not much bigger than the base of the statue) near the entrance of the airport. You don't even need to get out of your car.

As aviation buffs, our family members were thrilled to see a monument marking the site of Lindbergh's first solo flight, there at Souther Field. The statue shows him wingwalking, which he did in his eary days, to earn money for his Curtis Jenny airplane. As been stated at other places, it's a little challenging to find, but WORTH the effort.... More

History was made there! Charles Lindbergh bought his first plane, and soloed at Souther Field; the oldest continuously operated air port in the Western Hemisphere.

He showed up here to continue a dream he had of becoming an aviator. Looking for a bargain, he knew he would find surplus WW1 aircraft trainers here. I don't know if Lindbeghs dreams that day included flying solo across the Atlantic one day, but, from here at Souther Field, Americus, Georgia he flew off into history as one of... More

Slightly off the beaten path but a short, easy drive to get there. A pleasant find within the Jimmy Carter Regional Airport.

It's not a big place nor an ostentatious monument but one that can remind travelers that sometimes inconspicuous beginnings eventually create a lasting impact. This holds true both for Lindberg's First Solo flight commemorated at the air port as well as former president Carter whose modest beginnings in nearby Plains, GA led to far greater impact not only as president...
