Lindbergh in flight over the Tehachapis.

"This remarkable photograph, one of the most beautiful ever made of a glider in soaring flight, shows Colonel Lindbergh maneuvering a motorless airplane above the foothills of the Tehachapi Mountains, Calif. On the rising currents of air thrown up by hillsides such as these American glider pilots hope to set a new world's endurance record of more than fifteen hours."
