Donald A. Hall Sr. Biography and Introduction

Please Watch the discovery of a lost treasure in Sedona Arizona:

“Donald Albert Hall was one of this centuries great aeronautical engineers, and most likely, you’ve never heard of him.  But I guarantee, you have heard of the airplane he designed…the Spirit of St. Louis!”  – Hunt For Amazing Treasures, TLC (Sept. 2001)

For a traditional version of the story about the Spirit of St. Louis, Charles Lindbergh, Donald Hall Sr., and the men and women who build the plane in 60 days, read the this: history of the Spirit of St. Louis. It was written with the Lindbergh Foundation and Nova Hall in collaboration after the discovery of the trunk as seen in the video above.

The new book that Nova Hall is writing about his grandfathers untold story, has already changed history.
