I was in Gander, Newfoundland a couple of weeks ago for the 9-11 memorial services and stopped by another memorial site just of the end of 21-03 where an Arrow Air DC8-63 carrying troops home to Fort Campbell, Kentucky went down on December 12, 1985.





And a few shots at YQX that evening:

Gander looks quite in the above photo but it certainly came alive on 9-11 when 39 wide bodies arrived with nearly 7,000 passengers who had to be housed and fed over the next two or three days……nearly doubling the towns population.

Do you have a more direct shot of the information panel describing the crash. The angle you have because you where's kiting the names makes the information sign hard to read


OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

YQX has always played an important role in TATL military and pax service. Additionally YYR also serves the military aircraft in training and trans polar route diversions. Even today with airplanes that have the range to fly TATL non-stop YQX and YYR still very important diversion airports. On 9/11 YQX went above and beyond its role as just a diversion airport and served those stranded passengers and aircrews well above anyone's expectations. But, they have a great history of that. Their response to the 101AB/Arrow disaster was also second to none.

Well done, YQX!!!!
