  1. I would say that there should be a special shoutout to Gander because they cared for stranded passengers after 9/11 when airspace was closed. Also, some great Canadian comedians have come from Newfoundland

    • See, that’s why I need the help of people who know about these places more in depth. I’m just sharing images but I’d love for people to comment with extra tidbits of interesting info, just like you do! That’s how we grow and teach each other. Thanks always for sharing

      • Also, did you know the musical Come From Away is set in Gander, Newfoundland? It’s about the story of how they helped people stranded from 9/11

      • I have never heard of this musical, I’ll take a look. I’ve been seeing lots of 9/11 content since the 20-year anniversary last week, sometimes I forget how crazy that event was. You’re really a wealth of knowledge!
