Solar Impulse pilots Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg had the privelege of holding the original flight suit worn by Charles Lindbergh on his trans-Atlantic flight to Paris in 1927.
St. Louis made aviation history again this week with the arrival of Solar Impulse. The revolutionary and high-tech aircraft can fly day and night without a single drop of fuel. Solar Impulse founders, co-chairmen and co-pilots Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are leading the mission "Across America" with stops in five cities that includes St. Louis. St. Louis was chosen as the midwest U.S. stop because of the city’s great aviation history and its link to Charles Lindbergh. The Missouri History Museum allowed both pilots to hold aviation history and a piece of the great Lindbergh story when they held the famed pilot’s flight suit. Piccard met Lindbergh when he was 11 years old.
