On this day, 54 years ago, Jerrie Mock became the first woman to fly solo around the world when she landed The Spirit of Columbus right here in our amazing city—at what is now John Glenn Columbus International Airport. 29 days, 22,860 miles, long live The Spirit of Columbus!

The Columbus Foundation is working to capture The Spirit of Columbus through images that showcase the determination, dedication, and commitment of people in our smart + open community. Be sure to check out columbusfoundation.org and follow along on Facebook as we continue to celebrate The Spirit of Columbus through photography. You can also tune in on Twitter or Instagram.
