It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superman! Well, not quite although this sculpture is part plane and Charles Lindbergh was the Superman of the flapper era for his solo transatlantic flight. His very first solo flight, however, was from this very site. The statue...More

It’s hard to find. It’s not that interesting. It’s just saying that Lindbergh came here once to test a plane. Nothing huge. Definitely worth skipping.

It's a part of Georgia history! It's a monument that you should see. Bring the family. Just absorb the memory of life in this small town. Charles Lindbergh made history again by completing the first solo airplane flight across the Atlantic Ocean.
