: "My father, Zane Cieslak, was working as a mechanic at Robertson Aircraft Corp. at the time, and I remember the stories he told about when the "Spirit of St. Louis" flew into Lambert Field for an overnight stop on it's trip from California to New York prior to Lindbergh's Paris flight. "Slim", as Dad knew him, gave him a walk-around tour of the airplane on the morning he arrived at Lambert Field."
