The Spirit of St. Louis was built by 35 employees of Ryan Airlines, Inc., in San
Diego, California. It took just 60 days. Essentially all of those employees came
to the field to witness Charles Lindbergh taking the aircraft on its first test flight.

on May 20–21, 1927, Lindbergh made the historic first non-stop flight from 
Roosevelt Airfield in New York to Paris, France in 33 hours, 30 minutes for 
a distance of approximately 3,600 miles.
