Many guests wonder why San Diego Airport is sometimes called Lindberg Field. Charles Lindberg, the famous aviator, commissioned an aircraft with hopes that it would be able to fly from New York to Paris without stopping. Once test flights were complete, the “Spirit of St. Louis” took off from San Diego in 1927, creating a huge spark of interest in aviation and travel.
