Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

Sections missing?[edit]

There seem to be whole sections of his life missing, including his 7,000 mile tour of South America in late 1929, his tour of Asia in the Sirius and the subsequent North Atlantic-Europe-Africa-South America tour also in the Sirius. Were they deemed not relevent or have they just not been written yet? (talk) 14:45, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

flew bootleg whisky while living in Bird City, Kansas[edit]

I heard stories from my father that Lindbergh flew bootleg whiskey out of Nebraska into Kansas because Kansas was a dry state at that time. Just another way to make a few extra dollars along with his barnstorming. I was just wondering if anyone else had ever heard about this. Knowing my dad, I have no doubt that he was telling the truth and that he knew Lindbergh during his stay in the area. Mouse1014 (talk) 10:37, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Lindbergh's secret life[edit]

Not a word about Lindbergh's three families in Germany, and the children he fathered with his three bigamous wives? Surprising. And no, it's not a tin-hat conspiracist's theory. See the book "Lindbergh's Secret Life," though it has not yet been translated from German into English. DZNA testing hs proven the relationship of the "secret children" to their father. Also amply reported in the New York Times. (talk) 00:28, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

The children and their mothers are all listed in the infobox. If you are that interested you are also completely free to write and contribute a section on this aspect of his life. Centpacrr (talk) 01:20, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
I don't know what you guys are looking at. The three German/Swiss families are extensively covered in the article. DNA testing, the whole bit. -- Jack of Oz [pleasantries] 01:23, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
