In addition to having been taken in Boston, these photos also have another Boston connection. Next to Lindbergh are two Army aviators - Lts Albert F. Hegeneberger (short man) and Lester Maitland (tall man). Hegenberger and Maitland completed the first transpacific flight to Hawaii on June 28–29, 1927. Hegenberger was born in South Boston and graduated from Boston's Mechanic Arts High School and from MIT. For more information see Wikipedia.
