BYRD DIARY

FILE--Richard Byrd, hailed as a national hero as the first person to fly over the North Pole 70 years ago on May 9, 1926, poses in front of a Fokker plane used for his expedition to the North Pole. Scholars at Ohio State University's Byrd Polar Research Center say a flight diary found in January 1996 indicates Byrd and his pilot were concerned about an engine leak and turned around about 150 miles short of the top of the world.
