“Who knew that Charles Lindbergh was in GA but he was a wing walker too”

Charles Lindbergh Monument
Reviewed 4 June 2017

Just outside of town in a small general aviation airport that has private planes and working crop dusting planes. Yes they still dust crops with planes in GA.
You won't be here long but it is cool to learn another bit of American history.
The statue shows him as a wing-walker during his daredevil barnstorming days before he arrived at Souther Field in April 1923. The statue was sculpted by William G. Thompson and dedicated in 1992.

Seen it, been there! Not so much to see, but i felt the reat history.
A little "behind the streets", but easy to find!

We had no idea Charles Lindbergh had his first solo flight from here, so it was interesting to stop and see this.

Saw this on Tripadvisor and we were in the area so we thought we'd check it out. There's not much too it, but historical buffs, airplane enthusiasts, or photo lovers might enjoy it. It won't take much of your time if you decide to go. It's right near a very small air field. It's easy to get to, in fact we took pics from our car because it was so hot out (in the 90's with high humidity.) There was nobody else there. The flowers surrounding the statue were pretty.

A short drive from Americus is the Lindbergh Monument. Rather underwhelming but if you are into aviation it is a pleasant stop on the way to somewhere else. It is located at the Jimmy Carter Airport, where you will see crop dusters working their jobs along with private aircraft.
