The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series presents the film War Birds: Diary of an Unknown Aviator October 4. War Birds is a documentary film about three American pilots who flew with the Royal Air Force during World War I. The film chronicles the exploits of John Grider, Elliott White Springs, and Larry Callahan, known as the Three Musketeers. It was assumed that the diary was written and kept by Grider, the only member of the trio to be killed in action. However, it was discovered in 1959 that Springs, who later became president of Spring Cotton Mills, Inc. and founder of Springmaid Beach Resort in Myrtle Beach, wrote and published the work. Free.
