Spirit of St. Louis Replica Rises Again
It has been more than a decade since the Spirit of St. Louis replica has taken to the air. This week, with help from a lot of people, the replica was raised up into the sky inside the museum hangar to fly much as it did for the years it graced the skies of the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Lindbergh Terminal. Check out the photo album below to see the work it took to bring this plane back into the sky.
Special thanks to: L&M Associates, LTD, Havtek Structural Consulting, Olson Chain & Cable, Kraemer North America and Club Jet for their expert assistance getting the Spirit of St. Louis in the air again, and thank you again to the Metropolitan Airports Commission for allowing Wings of the North to display it.
