Big Sign Story, girl in Snoopy Red Baron goggles story prompts memories
Writer thinks Streeval Field reverted to cornfield after Luther Collins established LuDot Airport. Governor (maybe he was candidate) made stop at the Christine air strip
By Larry Walker
I can recall going to Streeval Field to air shows when I was a kid in the late 1950's.
I remember Bert Combs landing there either when he was running for Governor or maybe after he was elected (1959).
I recall the shirt tails of people who solo'd there hanging on the wall in the waiting room area of the hanger building.
I think Vaughn Burton was a young flyer there at that time.
The field reverted back to a corn field after Luther Collins built LuDot airport in Columbia in the early 1960's.
