In 1923 Charles Lindbergh arrived at Souther Field in Americus. Here he purchased his first airplane, a surplus JN-4 "Jenny"
biplane, and conducted his first solo flight. Four years later, in 1927, Lindbergh would go down in history for his record-breaking,
nonstop transatlantic flight from New York to Paris, France. This gallery showcases both Lindbergh's time at Souther Field
and the transition of Souther Field from its World War I origins as a flight-training facility to its present-day use as a
college campus and public airport.
