A couple of my best friends were diverted to Gander from London on 9/11. Thank you for taking such great care of them, and everyone with them. We are all so grateful. Having lived in St. John's as a teenager, I was proud of my Newfie friends -- but not at all surprised. You're some special, moy dears!

I am a US citizen listening to a news report about the Canadian Airports and their citizen's contributions on 9-11. The most impressive story is about the people of Grander and how they helped the stranded airline passengers. You are an amazing group of people and I thank you for all that you did to help.

Cnadian Friends, I was piloting a B-767 for Delta 10 years ago today from Madrid to New York and diverted into Saint Johns after the attacks on America. I wanted to take this time to thank all Canadians for the assistance they gave me and my passengers on that day. The French gave the United States the Statue of Liberty. I'm not sure what I can give Canada to express my gratitude but know that someday, in perhaps some unthinkable dark day for Canada, I, we, will be there for you. God bless Canada.
