Spirit of St Louis
(Maura McCarthy)
Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic in 1927 in The Spirit of St. Louis. You can see the plane at the Air and Space Museum's "Milestones of Flight" gallery, or carve one out of your pumpkin at home. In this stencil, cut on the dotted lines so the plane stands out from the light behind it.

Click on the image above for a printer-friendly stencil to attach to your pumpkin.

Email smithsonian.magazine@gmail.com photographs of your pumpkin along with your name and we'll post them on this page.
