Unless we missed something elsewhere on the grounds, all there is to see here is a statue of Lindbergh in a tiny "park" (not much bigger than the base of the statue) near the entrance of the airport. You don't even need to get out...More

History was made there! Charles Lindbergh bought his first plane, and soloed at Souther Field; the oldest continuously operated air port in the Western Hemisphere.

He showed up here to continue a dream he had of becoming an aviator. Looking for a bargain, he knew he would find surplus WW1 aircraft trainers here. I don't know if Lindbeghs dreams that day included flying solo across the Atlantic one day, but,...More

Slightly off the beaten path but a short, easy drive to get there. A pleasant find within the Jimmy Carter Regional Airport.

Not in a good location. No sign showing where to turn off the main highway. Not enough history on the site.

not terribly exciitng, but since you'll pass it anyway on the road between Americus and Andersonville you should stop so you can say you've been! Site of Lindbergh's first solo flight. It'll take you 5 minutes.

We did not know that Lindbergh's first flight was from this area. It's only a monument, so a quick picture and that's all.

Quick visit. Monument is located at a small regional airport. Lindbergh bought his first airplane here for $500, a Curtis Jenny.
