Back in 1971 I had a layover at Gander International on my way back to Ft.Dix,NJ from Germany, after a one year tour of duty while in the US Army, and I was impressed with the layout of the terminal.I had been all over the world and been at many airports,including one of the smallest.Wake Island in the Pacific, and largest ,Rein Mein in Germany and Honolulu International, but none of them had the same ambiance as Gander.I almost didn't make it back on my flight since I was only about 200 miles from my home town,St.John's and it was mighty tempting to take a detour.But,I never, and ,as they say,the rest is history.But,Gander is really unique and I think this old saying applies here," if we wait long enough everything old is new again" as is the case with Gander!I hope this puts the town on the Radar again.It's a nice place to visit!

I guess Townies will be in a big snit now until there's a bigger brand name fashion show held at Torbay Airport. Maybe 'London Fog'.
