from The Associated Press via Honolulu Star-Advertiser
Charles Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis, one of the most treasured aircraft at the National Air and Space Museum, has been lowered to the floor for its first conservation treatment in 22 years. For decades the single-engine aircraft has been suspended from the ceiling and seen from afar. Recently it was carefully lowered to the floor. Now visitors are getting a close look at the historic plane and can better imagine what it must have been like to fly.
