Did you know - On May 21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh landed at Le Bourget Field in Paris and became the first pilot to complete a solo, nonstop transatlantic flight. Amelia Earhart followed Lindbergh five years later flying from Newfoundland, Canada to Londonderry, Northern Ireland to become the first woman to fly across the North Atlantic.
Lindbergh’s plane, the "Spirit of St. Louis," was tiny by today’s standards and weighed in at 2,150 lbs. And Earhart’s Lockheed Vega was not any bigger. It makes us wonder how Lindbergh and Earhart were able to hydrate during their extremely long flights!
If you’ve traveled via plane before, then you know that the combination of low humidity and high altitude can sometimes leave you feeling drained and dehydrated. As we head into a summer travel season, don’t forget to keep hydrated when you’re flying…and when you’re on the ground too!
