Lost & Found Sound Ii:

Quest for Sound Curator Jay Allison presents a story about an American couple trying to get to the field where Charles Lindbergh was expected to land on this date in 1927. Minnesotan Xandra Kalman (SAN-drah KAHL-man) and her husband Collie were on vacation in Paris, and made their way to Le Bourget Field when Charles Lindbergh landed there that day. She later told the story to her children and grandchildren and recorded it on audio cassette. Her step-grandson, Marc Ortin submitted it to our Quest for Sound.
