West Creek's Own Charles Lindbergh

One of the icons of American aviation history was Charles Lindbergh who, in May 1927, made the first non stop flight across the Atlantic when he took off from Roosevelt field in Garden City, Long Island and landed in Paris. He became an overnight hero.

Well, it seems that little old West Creek had it's own "Charles Lindbergh", Everett Cameson, who flew into West Creek a little over a year from Lindbergh's epic flight. A gathering of locals gave a rousing welcome to their local "Lindy".

I wonder if there are some photos of some of the locals with Everett floating around in a West Creek attic. It sure would be interesting to see one.
