Charles Lindbergh's grandson recreates the epic flight of the Spirit of St. Louis.
In 1927, an unknown airmail pilot took off from New York's Roosevelt Field. 34 hours later, Charles Lindbergh landed in Paris, and a new era in aviation had begun.
TIME MACHINE: LINDBERGH FLIES AGAIN, follows every step of Erik Lindbergh's 2002 mission to retrace his grandfather's historic journey, from the construction of his composite Lancair Columbia 300 plane to the struggle to stay focused as he attempts a feat that is still regarded as the "Mt. Everest" of solo, small-plane aviation. Footage of both flights shows that the while the dangers have diminished over the years, the challenge is still very real. This is especially true for Erik, who was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis 15 years ago and for years struggled to perform daily tasks, much less fly a plane. A breakthrough biotech drug opened the skies to him again.
One of the most important journeys of the 20th century comes alive again in this unique program.
