Win Perkins’ amazing “Charles Lindbergh” videos

Hi ladies! I loved this website and thought I’d share it with you all. It is a great immersive experience into the history of Charles Lindbergh’s historic trip non-stop across the Atlantic to Paris. If you are not usually inclined to watch on-line videos, PLEASE make an exception and watch this amazing video.

Forwarded to me….

Win Perkins, a real estate appraiser who specializes in airport properties, has posted on his Website this video he created of Charles Lindbergh’s famous and risky takeoff in the “Spirit of St. Louis” (20 May 27). According to Perkins, this is unlike any other presentation of the takeoff footage. Perkins said he “painstakingly assembled news footage from five cameras that filmed Lindbergh’s takeoff from Roosevelt Field, Long Island “and” mixed it with enhanced audio from the same newsreel sources.  This is one of the most interesting videos I’ve come across.

When you click on the address, episode #3 comes up ready to play. I suggest you first click on “CONTACT” to the left and select #1, then watch them in order, #1 through #4 (each time going back to “Contact” and selecting the next one). I was glued to the screen through all 4. What guts it took for Lindbergh to overcome the odds against him, and accomplish this amazing feat!

    Win…. your film is magical, almost taking us back to the day. It surely represents much thought and work and something of which you should be very proud. And thanks to Judy for making us aware of it!

    Thank you for the kind words about my film. You are women after my own heart. I still have my 1947 Luscombe 8A which is under restoration in NJ. Bought it in 1979. Still my favorite.

    Regards,

    Win Perkins
