Airplane Photograph of Great Ice Jam In Missouri River Below Sioux City.
AVIATOR RAY SHIFFLETT.
LOOKING UP “OLD MUDDY” FROM NEAR SERGEANT BLUFF.
This photograph, taken by A. R. Mills, Tribune staff photographer, from an. airplane
piloted by Ray Shifflett, Sioux City aviator and member of The Tribune “Flying Circus,”
shows in the foreground the end of the great Missouri river ice jam about two and one-half
miles southwest of Sergeant Bluff. This jam was the direct cause of the flooding of thousands
of acres of land between Sioux City and Sergeant Bluff. It also was responsible for thebaching
up of the waters of “Old Muddy” into the Floyd river, now receding after overflowing its
banks into the lowlands of Sioux City.
In the immidiate foreground the picture shows where the dynamite “bombs" were
dropped from Aviator Shifflett’s “bombing” plane by Sheriff Paul T. Beardsley and 0.
Moriarity, a Sioux City civil engineer employed by the Woodbury county board of super
visors, in an effort to break up the jam. The “bombs" dropped late Friday afternoon virtually
cut the jam in two and caused a slight movement in the ice, the “bombers” said. The ice
in the center of tne picture ran up the river toward Sioux City for more than six miles.
Then there was a break and another jam started, extending almost to Floyd monument. The
jam was made up almost entirely of slush ice and for this reason the “bombing” had very
little effect Thursday. After the second attack Friday, however, the ice started moving,
resulting in a drop of the flood waters near Dakota City which is on the left side of picture
in the background. Sergeant Bluff and Brasfield’s island are at the right in the back
ground. The island was practically covered with water. Duncan’s island in the same vicin
ityalso was virtually inundated. Due to muddy roads and flooded land near the ice jam,
the only way of taking a picture of the big ice pack was from an airplane. This is the first
time that an ice jam in the Missouri has been “bombed” from an airplane and the above air
plane picture is the first ever taken of such a scene.
