Timeless[edit]

In the section under "Movies and TV", I added a reference to an episode of the NBC time-travel drama "Timeless" that featured Lindbergh. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dmiller0122 (talkcontribs) 15:54, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Weight of Spirit of St Louis[edit]

In the New York-Paris Flight section it's stated that the aircraft carried 450 US gallons of fuel, and weighed 2,710 lbs. Avgas is 6 lbs/gallon, so 450 gallons would weight 2,700lbs, leaving 10 lbs for the weight of aircraft and pilot, which seems unlikely! Either the sentence is poorly worded and 2,710 lbs is meant to be the empty weight of the aircraft, and it actually weighed twice that on take off, or it's a simple mistake. It's not clear what the source for the information is.

Thanks for the alert. The airplane weighed 5,135 lbs fully loaded, according to NACA Technical Note No. 257. I have corrected the article text here. Binksternet (talk) 13:09, 26 April 2018 (UTC)
