Episode description: Two brothers from Parsippany, NJ check up on their uncle's claim that he built the engine for Charles Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis. A toolmaker and artist in Kansas City wonders whether two peculiar liquid-containing pins, wrapped in a newspaper dated 1960, could be the prototypes for a poison-filled pin that U2 pilot Gary Powers was carrying when his spy plane was shot down over the Soviet Union. And a Kentucky woman tries to discover the connection between her great-great-grandfather, lieutenant governor of the New Mexico territory in the 1870s, and a photo of legendary Apache warrior Geronimo.
