The history of Lambert St. Louis International Airport is the story of American aviation. Everything that has taken place on the airport’s footprint from Lindbergh to American Airlines, jet airliners to space travel constitutes a microcosm of the triumphs and tragedies of winged flight in America. The Aerial Crossroads of America chronicles the transformation of the patch of farmland leased by Albert Bond Lambert in 1920 into the sprawling international airport it is today. Illustrated extensively with images from the airport’s history, the book tells not only the story of Lambert, but also the history of what it means to take flight in America.
