Up Up and Away... Maybe
Dateline: Milwaukee, 1912. May 20th was the date on which Charles Lindbergh took off in 1927 on the first transatlantic solo flight by a man, and on this same date five years later Amelia Earhart made the first solo transatlantic flight by a woman. Wisconsin has its own rich aviation history, some of it bizarre and some of it heroic. For an introduction to it, visit our online exhibit “Sky High” or browse through the hundreds of aviation photos at Wisconsin Historic Images.
