February 1929 - Charles Lindbergh Aboard
During the February 1929 crossing to the West Coast, the aviation pioneer came aboard on the 6th, while docked in the Panama Canal Zone. The exact date is not known but a Time Magazine dated editorial of 6 Feb 1929 references an address Lindbergh made aboard TEXAS "the other night". The airplane shown here is a Vought O2U-1. The identification is based on the O2U-1 being the only airplane aboard TEXAS when Lindbergh was aboard. It is unknown if Lindbergh flew off of BB35 in the airplane
