"While everyone else in the world seems to be ecstatic over this Lindberg[sic] fellow, it is the papyrus unearthed at Kozra that has claimed my undivided attention."
Henry Walton Jones, Senior[src]

Charles Lindbergh was a famous aviator.

BiographyEdit

The first man who flew non-stop from Europe to America, Charles Lindbergh's feat in May 1927 caused a worldwide sensation. Dr. Henry Jones did not share the enthusiasm as he was more interested in other matters.[1]

Lindbergh also gained public attention when his infant son was kidnapped in the 1930s and found dead. Bruno Hauptmann was convicted and executed for the crime.[2]

The aviator was later ostracized after speaking for US neutrality during World War II which was interpreted as being pro-Nazi. However, he did go on to fight during the conflict against the Japanese over the Pacific.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The reference to Charles Lindbergh in the Grail Diary is minor, where Henry Jones misspells his name as Lindberg in an entry dated May 29, 1927. Other than the name and the date (Lindbergh performed his feat in 1927), there is no much other context to identify "Lindberg".

Charles Nungesser was another historical figure in Indiana Jones who attempted to perform this feat and Amelia Earhart would later be nicknamed "Lady Lindy" after Lindbergh.
