WHEN YOU FLY into Anchorage now, you land at the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. The ceremony marking the airport's renaming was held in July, staged in an airport hangar the size of four football fields.

Among the guests were Secretary of the Army Louis Caldera and Jane Garvey, administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration. Stevens's closest friends in the Senate, Democrats Fritz Hollings of South Carolina and Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, also were there.

Four U.S. Air Force F-15s screamed overhead as the national anthem was played. During the ceremony, Anchorage Opera baritone Robert Klink sang a parody of the song They Call the Wind Mariah: "Away up here, we have a man, his wit is always ready. He's our own, our very own, and we call him Typhoon Teddy."
