    Re: Weems article in latest Air&Space Mag

    Hi Roger,

    Thanks again for writing an excellent article. My source states:

    In 1926, Weems encountered Colonel Charles Lindbergh on an airfield in California. Weems walked up to the plane and said "Colonel Lindbergh, I would like to show you my sextant and watch." Lindbergh took the sextant and looked through the eyepiece, and replied "Commander, I am very much interested in this; I would like to get together with you on it."

    The conversation lasted only a few minutes and Weems thought he would not hear from Colonel Lindbergh again. But, within a year, President Calvin Coolidge's office sent Weems new orders to report to Washington immediately to work with Colonel Lindbergh for a series of instruction on navigation .

    Is this inaccurate? You obviously have done a lot of research.
