Lockheed Sirius Tingmissartoq

Charles Lindbergh and his wife Anne Morrow made a series of transoceanic airline survey flights in their Lockheed Sirius, nicknamed Tingmissartoq (Inuit for "one who flies like a big bird"). These flights put Charles and Anne's navigational skills, acquired from P. V. H. Weems and Harold Gatty, to the test.
