Lindbergh's grandson completed his solo flight, as his grandfather did many years ago.
Of course GPS did a great job in helping him completing the task.

But Charles Lindbergh used deduced reckoning — which is basically holding a compass
and guessing at the wind. Was it a magnetic compass? If so, how could he rely on a
needle shaken by the normal vibration of the engine?
