Condition A-: minor repaired tears and restoration in margins; repaired pin holes at edges.

This powerful image of Lindbergh in the Spirit of St. Louis, a "Ryan NYP," depicts one of the most famous events of the decade. The Ryan Aeronautical Company was based in San Diego, where the Spirit of St. Louis was built. Although designed to Lindbergh's specifications, this plane was based on the existing Ryan M-2. Ryan was purchased by the aerospace and defense technology company Northrop Grumman in 1999.
