Website of the Day
Welcome to the Crooked Tree Village Reunion 2008, an idea borne by one of our village’s very own daughters, Linda Crawford Elul, who felt it was time to reunite with our long lost friends and families and reminisce about the good old times. The Reunion will take place on Friday, June 27th thru Sunday, June 29th, 2008 in the beautiful and tranquil Village of Crooked Tree. This site will be used to provide information about the reunion, so please visit it regularly to learn more about this SPECTACULAR EVENT that will go down as one of the most memorable in the history of Belize! COME ONE, COME ALL, COME HOME TO CELEBRATE.

Lindbergh Lands in Belize!!! Air travel comes to Belize...

On December 30, 1927 Belize was visited by Col. Charles Lindbergh in his Ryan monoplane "The Spirit of St. Louis." Following his triumphant transatlantic flight, Lindbergh set off on a goodwill tour of the Caribbean Basin. He flew from St. Louis to Mexico City, then to Guatemala City and on to Belize.

In the first photo you can see "The Spirit of St. Louis" slipping into the wind on landing approach to the polo field at The Barracks. The Polo Club is on the left.

In the second photo, "The Spirit of St. Louis" is on the ground as welcoming crowds gather.

Tomorrow.... Lindbergh is welcomed by many Belizeans after he lands....
