In the darkest of hours, a shining beacon of humanity

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 22, 2014:
I remember that day vividly, as many do. I had just moved back home to Des Moines, WA -- under the flight path of SeaTac airport. Never in my life had the skies been so deathly quiet, nor, hopefully, will they be again.

A visitor from United States posted Sat June 1, 2013:
I counted 39 aircraft. I can see the aircraft is on the runway. Due to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. My condolences to the existence family.

A visitor from - posted Tue April 3, 2012:
They have parked all the planes on rwy 14/32 and left rwy 05/23 clear for arrivals and departures, beacause YHZ remained an operational airport for Canadian destinations. They also left the apron and the gates clear beacuse of this reason. Great photo!

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 17, 2011:
They are most likely parked on the runway versus near the terminal buildings because of possible bombs on board...wouldn't want them to explode near the building where people are...

A visitor from Germany posted Sun July 17, 2011:
Incredible view. But why did they park all airplanes on the runway and left the gate positions empty?

A visitor from - posted Sun July 17, 2011:
Looks like all of these planes have been lined up and stood in attention to salute the people who sacrificed in that tragic event. Just like a military squad which salutes to their lost comrades. (Ali Aminzadeh)

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 14, 2011:
I recall this image so vividly...I never thought I would see a photo of my memory. My heart was in my stomach as our British Airways jet landed and I saw the parked jets, two by two, from my window. We were parked next to an Alitalia jet for the next 9 hours or so; I lost track of time over the next several hours but it was dark when we finally deplaned. After all that waiting, the actual deplaning happened in a rush; we actually were nearly jogging off the plane! Thank you for posting this photo and THANK YOU to the amazing people of Halifax and Dartmouth, Nova Scotia where we stayed on the gym floor of a technical college!
Sorry to have broken the website rule by commenting on the subject of the photo rather than the photo itself. How on earth can you can separate the two here, though?

A visitor from - posted Fri March 18, 2011:
I was on a one one of those planes at that time

As greatfulness German airline Lufthansa entitled Airbus A 340 D-AIFC "Gander/Halifax".
It's the ONLY aircraft by Lufthansa that is NOT entitled by a german city or county !

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu September 16, 2010:
I feel it was incredible that an airport that normally handles a fraction of the aircraft shown was able to tidily park this amount and still continue to operate,amazing what amall airfields can achieve when the chips are down,well done to all concerned.

A visitor from Canada posted Sat April 24, 2010:
This photo is very powerful. Somehow this image describes the fear I felt that week.
And as my other countrymen have said, Thank You Canada.

A visitor from - posted Mon March 15, 2010:
Thank You Canada. . .

A visitor from - posted Wed February 24, 2010:
All i have to say is thanks you Canada As A proud American thanks you

A visitor from Canada posted Thu January 21, 2010:
The picture was taken from a BN2A Islander (CFAOU) operated by Provincial Airlines, chartered by the airport.

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 12, 2009:
This picture shows just how a few people can disrupt the world. Thank you, Gander, for holding "the world" in your loving arms. Not only do we honor our lost countrymen, but remember all you did for your neighbors to the south. THANK YOU.

A visitor from United States posted Mon July 6, 2009:
A day worse than pearl harbor RIP every one who died on that day

A visitor from Canada posted Tue March 17, 2009:
That is truly amazing, sadly the events that made this happen were all so tragic. And to the person who asked about how it was taken, most of Canada CF-18s were flying cover over Canada's Major cities. And seeing how Halifax is one of Canada's major ports I would imagine they would of been up.

A visitor from Germany posted Sat January 17, 2009:
Very sad what happend that day great job the guys did in Canada the victims will be unforgotten

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 23, 2008:
This is crazy. Amazing shot!

A visitor from Canada posted Mon September 29, 2008:
Very nice picture! But who took that picture??? All planes & helicopters was tie down that day.

A visitor from Australia posted Tue July 15, 2008:
Over 40 aircrafts are there, What a tragic event. but imagen what other airports would of look like the same day, planes piled up everywhere. As a pilot flying that day I was terified as I was diverted. 5* We will never forget the people who lost their lives.

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 12, 2008:
Very sad and tragic day, thanks to all those up there in Canada who gave us a hand, and God bless the victims and their families...

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 20, 2008:
A day that we would like to forget but we cannot. God bless the innocent people that lost their lives that day including the 343 firefighters from New York. I was on flight 51 from Gatwick that was diverted to Toronto. Not too many planes ended up there but I would like to see a picture if available. The Canadians were very kind to us and we appreciate that.

A visitor from Germany posted Tue February 19, 2008:
One of those days and views nobody will ever forget

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 27, 2007:
Changed a low pressure fuel pump on usn dc-9 on that ramp in the 80's. cool

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Thu December 27, 2007:
It is amazing how much aircrafts must there waiting for take-off.

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 20, 2007:
Such a tragic moment....

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 1, 2007:
We should never forget what Canada did for the United States on 9/11. I often think back to those few nights when the only thing in the skies were the stars.

A visitor from United States posted Fri July 27, 2007:
I just cant imagine what the people were thinking that were flying that day when they heard about it. Truly a sad day.

A visitor from Korea, Republic Of posted Thu July 5, 2007:
Wow - unbelievable! Let's hope we never see this again...

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 30, 2006:
Thank you Canada, we owe you one. Love, America

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun July 9, 2006:
I just wish such a great shot could have been taken on a better ocasion. Beautiful picture, worst of the days.
