Charles Lindbergh 1902-1974
American aviator, author, inventor, explorer and the spittin’ image of my father, also a pilot and first generation Swede in America. Lindbergh’s many  achievements in aviation have been overshadowed by the garish kidnapping of his baby son and by his isolationism and opposition to the European 1939-1945 War (in which, once American enter, he served as an important adviser to the US Air Force and is credited with many innovative ideas). His affection for and admiration of Germany, constant throughout the Nazi years, never diminished. He lived out his old age in Hawaii and died at 72 in 1974.
