US Navy Super Connie 1963 Crash

We just received this link to a video on Youtube produced by Dennis Smeaton of Gander . His father Fred Smeaton had taken video footage of the incident and Dennis recently produced this mini documentary. Dennis, like his father, continues to collect and produce historical video data about the Gander Airport. Many thanks to Mike Mcanany for bringing this video to our attention.

Gander Airport Documentary

Bull & Sail Films, a film group out of Calgary, has contacted us in asking for the GAHS assistance in developing a documentary on the history of Gander Airport. We are humbled in being considered for our input. We have been in contact with Reg Wright (GIAA), who we have recommended to this film group, to be also invited to participate. This is a great opportunity to be involved in a documentary film depicting the history of Gander Airport in telling the world Gander’s role in aviation’s history. We anticipate the full cooperation of everyone concerned in having this history documented as it should. The Gander Airport Historical Society is prepared to step up to another level. Filming is expected to start in the summer/fall of 2015.
