Woodbury man’s book chronicles ‘Miracle Flight’
Harold Gifford walks among his fellow Woodbury residents without much fanfare.
That’s not the case when he travels to Carroll, Iowa. Waitresses ask for his autograph there.
They understand how different life might have been in their town 50 years ago if the plane Gifford was flying would have crashed instead of safely skidding to a halt in a cornfield.
“I was kind of a hero to those people,” said the 89-year-old who lives with his wife Carol in a home off Lake Road.
