  • Short Summary

    Lindbergh arrives in Mexico City, welcomed by the crowds.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Lindbergh's Latest Exploit. America's Ace lands safely in Mexico City after 27 hours non-stop flight from Washington."

    Mexico City, Mexico

    M/S as crowds rush across an airfield. Good C/U of Lindbergh, looking out of the plane window. The camera view is seen from the back of a moving car, of a line of police on horses. There is a motor bike and side car, with a man with a white Mexican hat, a man in a bowler and a man with a cap, like a messenger boy. They keep looking back at the police. Brief shots of motorcade.

    Note: Very little of Lindbergh but the three on the motorbike look quirky and funny.
