We’re celebrating #NationAviationDay on this #fabflyingfriday with this 1933 photo of Charles Lindbergh (in the black jacket) docking his Lockheed Tingmissartoq (an Inuit word meaning “one who flies like a big bird) floatplane at Pan Am’s Dinner Key passenger terminal. Lindbergh was instrumental in mapping fight routes during the early years of Pan Am.
Dinner Key, located in Coconut Grove, Fl, served as Pan Am’s passenger terminal from 1931-1945. It is currently the home of Miami City Hall.
