Lindy praises an old friend—“He can fly anything on wings, from Jennies to DC6s”

TLS signed “Charles,” one page, 8.5 x 11, June 6, 1954. Letter containing a transcript of his letter of recommendation for ‘Bud' Gurney. In part: “The name is Harlan A. Gurney…He is the ‘Bud’ in my book…He is capable and easy to work with, and has covered an extraordinary span of aviation history, from 1922 to date. He can fly anything on wings, from Jennies to DC6s, used to make and jump his own parachutes, flew the same mail route I did, etc., etc. I don’t know of anyone else in the country who would be able to advise you as well about aircraft and procedures in connection with filming the ‘Spirit of St. Louis,’ aside from the author, who actually went through these experiences—in fact there are a lot of items related to the problems you will encounter that Bud knows more about than I do.” In fine condition. Lindbergh had met Gurney while working at the Nebraska Aircraft Corporation in 1922—neither of them had ever flown, and were soon taken up together on their first flight by the company’s chief engineer. Excellent content associated with Lindbergh’s earliest experiences in aviation. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
