LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- One of the world's most famous aviators landed at Louisville’s Bowman Field in 1927 greeted by 10,000 local spectators.

Thirty-six years ago on this date in July, a replica of Charles Lindbergh’s Spirit of St. Louis, flew back to Bowman Field.

In this Friday Flashback, WHAS11 News was there in 1977, and also found film of Lindbergh’s original Louisville visit.
