An all-day celebration including a parade, reception, and fireworks, welcomed Adolphus Greely back home to Newburyport after his Lady Franklin Bay Arctic expedition. Arches, bearing appropriate mottoes, were placed across State Street, Prospect Street, and in front of City hall. The arch at the top of State Street is shown in this photograph. Displayed on either side are the names of the two ships, Thetis and Bear, that rescued the expedition's survivors.
Plane through: Cessna lands on Houston golf course
HOUSTON (AP) — An area near the 11th hole at a Houston golf course provided a smooth landing spot after a small plane ran out of fuel and glided on to the grass.
The Cessna 170 was expected to be moved from Hermann Park on Tuesday. The unplanned landing of the single-engine plane happened Monday night on a flight from Lafayette, La.
