AMERICA'S LEGENDARY HEROES OF AVIATION: HOWARD HUGHES AND CHARLES LINDBERGH! Special Embossed Tin Packaging - 2 DVD Set! America is the birthplace of aviation. When Orville and Wilbur Wright took flight, they began a revolution that changed everything from commercial travel to mail service and aerial warfare. The early pioneers of aviation were many, but two Americans stand head and shoulders above the others, not only because of their contributions to the art and science of flight, but because of their unique talents and larger-than-life personalities, making them truly American Heroes of Aviation. When Charles A. Lindbergh, alone in his single-engine Spirit of St. Louis, ascended into the skies over Floyd Bennett Field in 1927, he was not only making the first flight across the Atlantic to Paris, he was soaring into history. Lucky Lindy's amazing journey made him an instantly recognizable personality and arguably the most famous man in America, if not the entire world. His solo achievement was prelude to a life of accomplishment, triumph and tragedy witnessed by millions through the lens of his celebrity, which he never sought and endured stoically throughout his lifetime. Howard Hughes, aviator, inventor, dare-devil, Hollywood movie maker and figure of controversy all of his life, relished his fame, unlike Lindbergh. Scion to a fortune made in the oil business, Hughes was never one to shy away from the spotlight, whether he was setting air speed and endurance records in planes he designed, including the world's largest plane, the Spruce Goose or directing Jane Russell in the Hollywood western The Outlaw. His life and exploits, like Lindbergh's were, magnified by the lens of celebrity. Although by nature almost polar opposites, these two aviation heroes flew into the imaginations of Americans young and old, and their accomplishments helped to make the American aviation industry the envy of the world. Now TMG brings you their amazing biographies together in this collector's edition of America's Legendary Heroes of Aviation, two original documentaries produced at the TMG studios. Rare footage and commentary make these documentaries must-see for not only aviation enthusiasts, but for anyone with an interest in American history, and the personalities that shaped that history.
