An aerobatic flight with the legendary Sean Tucker or a ride with Kermit Weeks in his P-51 are two of the unique experiences available to bidders in this year's Lindbergh Foundation online fundraising auction. Other prizes include a 10-day African safari, a day at King Schools with John and Martha King, aviation gear from Garmin and Forward Vision, and a bronze sculpture donated by Erik Lindbergh. Bidders can send in bids via e-mail until Tuesday, April 13. On the 14th, a live auction will be held at the foundation's annual award celebration at Sun 'n Fun, in Lakeland, Fla. The highest price from the online bidders will be announced at the live auction, and if no higher bid is received, the online bidder will win.

"We are extremely grateful to our thoughtful and generous donors for making these extraordinary opportunities available to Lindbergh Foundation supporters around the world," said Honorary Chairman Reeve Lindbergh. "The combination of the award event, Lindbergh Foundation Day (April 15th), and the Sun 'n Fun venue will create excitement in the aviation community, and will serve to generate additional interest in Foundation mission and programs." The auction raises money to support the foundation's work supporting research and education aimed toward promoting a balance of technology and environmental protection.
