    Default A300 B4(F) Gander, Newfoundland to Omaha, Nebraska

    Tried something a bit different. Rather than a GPS direct and a great circle route, I picked out a few waypoints myself to fly. One airport was under cloud cover so I didn't get a shot. So, CTQX to KOMA.

    Oh yes Gander,

    That's where many people from both North America and Europe stopped to refuel on early Trans Atlantic flights! My wife was among them.

    In 1962 she was in high school and on a group "educational tour" to Europe. They left D.C. then stopped to refuel at Gander and at Shannon. Going the other way, they reversed the process.

    Two years ago we were on the QMII returning to NYC from Southampton when a passenger became deadly ill and they diverted far enough north so a rescue chopper from Gander could take the ill passenger off the upper deck of the ship for treatment. Having been an old chopper guy myself, I'd have loved to be able to get up on that deck, but for obvious reasons, it wasn't allowed.

    Having said that, I did some pretty good pictures of the bird from our stateroom patio.

    Good memories! My first flight to Europe was in 1962 on an Icelandair DC-6 from JFK (different name back then, but I don't remember) to Gander for refueling, then to Reykjavik, Iceland, and then to Copenhagen, Denmark. In Reykjavik they bussed us to a restaurant downtown for dinner. Drinks were free in Tourist Class!
