Corner of Kitty Hawk Drive and Lindbergh Close, Newport
Located in an area of housing on the south side of Somerton Road where street names have a 'pioneers of aviation' theme.
Kitty Hawk, a small town in North Carolina, became famous after the Wright brothers used a site 6km from the town to make their first controlled powered aeroplane flights on December 17, 1903.

Charles Lindbergh (1902-1974) achieved worldwide fame in 1927 after his solo non-stop flight from Long Island, New York to Le Bourget Field in Paris, a distance of nearly 3,600 statute miles (5,800 km), in the single-seat, single-engine monoplane Spirit of St. Louis.
