Lindbergh’s Iconic Plane Lands Back Home At Lambert Airport

ST. LOUIS, MO. (Lambert–St. Louis International Airport) – Charles Lindbergh’s 1934 Model D-127 Monocoupe is back where it belongs at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. The historic plane is an iconic symbol to many who travel through the St. Louis airport. The plane was placed on display at Lambert in 1979, but removed in 2011 to make room for renovations to the terminal. During that time, the Missouri History Museum restored the aircraft and it is now suspended from the ceiling above the Concourse C checkpoint/Exit in Terminal 1.

Passengers who want to learn more about the Monocoupe will find an interactive kiosk on the upper ticketing level. The interactive kiosk covers the history of Lambert, Charles Lindbergh and the restoration of the aircraft.
