The poem



McGirr record

Copy of an original landing record at McGirr about 1926.  A budding historian at five years of age, little red-haired Alice pulled this crumpled sheet of paper from the wastebasket. It lists the air mail pilots who flew over and one who landed.  That pilot who signed the register, Ira Biffel, taught Charles Lindbergh to fly.
