Callie Graphics/Coronavirus Situation Report: Hey guys, just wanted to keep you all up-to-date. It is getting increasingly hard to keep up. We are working 60+ hour weeks and still can't keep on top of things. We are so grateful for the work, and hate to sound like whiners when things are so bad across the world, but we just can't keep up at this pace. From here on out, I am not going to be able to give exact delivery dates for stock or custom orders. I just can't guess so far out when we have this many orders coming in everyday. Stock orders should be somewhere around 1 week, and custom orders at least 6 weeks, but that could change as times goes on. Please bear with us, we are doing our very best to keep on top of things! We truly appreciate your patience through all of this! The world is just so out of balance right now.
Ryan Spirit of St. Louis
The Spirit of St. Louis (Registration: N-X-211) is the custom-built, single engine, single-seat monoplane that was flown solo by Charles Lindbergh on May 20–21, 1927, on the first solo non-stop transatlantic flight from Long Island, New York, to Paris, France, for which Lindbergh won the $25,000 Orteig Prize.
Lindbergh took off in the Spirit from Roosevelt Airfield, Garden City, New York, and landed 33 hours, 30 minutes later at Aéroport Le Bourget in Paris, France, a distance of approximately 3,600 miles (5,800 km). One of the best known aircraft in the world, the Spirit was built by Ryan Airlines in San Diego, California, which at the time was owned and operated by Benjamin Franklin Mahoney who had purchased it from its founder, T. Claude Ryan, in 1926. The Spirit is now on permanent display in the main entryway's Milestones of Flight gallery at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.
