July 7, 1927, the Marmora Herald wrote that Col Charles Lindbergh passed over Marmora in his monoplane, "The Spirit of St. Louis". He was accompanied by a squadron of eleven United States Army planes. His plane appeared much faster than the others, and he was able to circle round or outdistance them at will. Unfortunately one of his escorts was killed as a result of a collision with another machine while preparing to land in Ottawa.
