Oooh he would have cringed to see you call him Lucky Lindy - he did not like the nickname, on the basis that he did not think he was lucky at all. And I tend to agree with him. He thought out the flight in enormous, logical detail and was as prepared as it was possible to be.

Of course, there is always an element of luck in an undertaking like this.
