Charles Lindbergh with James Hartness

"Lucky Lindy"
Hit song from 1927
Charles Lindbergh disliked this song. He felt "luck" had nothing to do with his solo flight from New York to Paris in 1927. Instead, he reasoned his successful, long distance, record breaking flight was due to careful planning, a good airplane and a reliable engine. That said, "Lucky Lindy" is still a great sounding old tune!
