Effort Underway To Save Bel-Aire's ''Sputnik'' Globe


It may be the only piece of the old Bel-Aire Motel that anyone wants to save. 

 

An online campaign is underway to preserve the "Sputnik," the twinkling globe that has sat on top of the motel's sign since the 1960s.  It once served as a beacon for travelers coming into Springfield on Route 66... and it's still functioning, even though most of the rest of the Bel-Aire has fallen on hard times. 

 

Fans of local history hope to save the "Sputnik" from being lost to the wrecking ball, even if the rest of the Bel-Aire is eventually torn down.
