1927: Lindbergh comes in for a landing

Charles Lindbergh flies over Davis-Monthan Airfield on Sept. 23, 1927 to dedicate Tucson's new airport. Local resident Hal Burns created a cactus "Spirit of Tucson" plane made of cacti in the likeness of Lindbergh's "Spirit of St. Louis" plane for the event. It sits in the foreground of this photo.
