Tingmissartoq Route Map, 1933 Airline Survey Flight

In 1933, Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh undertook a demanding five-month, four-continent airline survey flight from the North Atlantic to Europe, Africa, and South America that tested the viability of the Weems System of Navigation.

Their open-cockpit Lockheed Sirius Tingmissartoq was far better outfitted for navigation than the Spirit of St. Louis. Charles and Anne demonstrated that long-range air navigation could be safe, practical, and reliable.
