July 22, 2005|From Times Wire Reports

An aluminum propeller from the plane that aviator Charles Lindbergh flew from New York to China in 1931 was sold for $42,000 at a Christie's International auction in New York City.

The propeller, from a Lockheed Sirius aircraft, was bought by an anonymous bidder as part of a sale that included 19th century paintings.

A bubble sextant that Lindbergh used to navigate on his record-setting 1930 flight from California to New York went to an anonymous bidder for $26,400.
