Be Charles Lindbergh for a day [VIDEO]
LITTLE FALLS – Most of us will never fly a plane across the Atlantic Ocean – but now, you can IMAGINE TO at the Charles A Lindbergh State Historical Site in Little Falls.
The museum will be unveiling their new electronic flight simulation of the Little Falls native’s famous plane, “The Spirit of St. Louis” on Saturday.
Museum Site Manager Charlie Pautler says the simulator is exactly the same size and shape as the Spirit of St. Louis, and visitors can “fly” the plane from New York to Paris with a computer monitor showing what Charles Lindbergh would have seen.
Pautler says the exhibit has been previewed for area schools over the last three weeks. It was designed with school-age kids in mind, but can be used by people of all ages.
As a sidenote – the launching of the exhibit comes at the right time , as Monday, May 21st was the 85th Anniversary of Lindbergh’s groundbreaking non-stop flight across the Atlantic.
The Lindbergh Historical Site is located a mile and a half outside Little Falls on Lindbergh Drive. They’re open Thursday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5:00 p.m. until Labor Day.
