"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.
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, however, as he was more interested in other matters.
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.
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 not much context to identify "Lindberg".
Aviator Amelia Earhart would later be nicknamed "Lady Lindy" after Lindbergh.
A line in the Fate of Atlantis comic, set in 1939 suggests that Lindbergh and his family flew from America over the Atlantic "five years ago". As with the Grail Diary, little context is given, but it likely refers to their 1935 hasty and secretive "flight to Europe" (by ship) to escape press attention in the wake of the Lindbergh kidnapping.
