On July 24, 1927, Charles Lindbergh made an unexpected stop at Old Orchard Beach. The field he was due to land in was fogbound, but he knew he had a much larger landing strip at Old Orchard.

Here, Spirit of St. Louis is backed into Harry Jones' hangar and guarded by local policemen (Sgt. Lewis Fowler identified as second from left).

Lindbergh is center, and on far right in suit is a reporter who had been following Lindbergh's cross-country good-will flight for the New York Daily Mirror newspaper.
