Win Perkins, a real estate appraiser who specializes in airport properties, has posted on his web site a video he created of Charles Lindbergh's famous and risky takeoff/flight in the Spirit of St. Louis on the competitive trip to Paris .
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 seen come over the Internet.
