A quarter century has passed since Arrow Air Flight 1285 crashed 73 seconds after it lifted off a Gander runway on Dec. 12, 1985.
Two hundred and fifty-six people died — 248 U.S. soldiers and eight crewmembers.
It remains the deadliest aviation disaster in Canadian history and one of the worst ever faced by the U.S. military.
The Telegram's Steve Bartlett teamed up with his colleagues at The Beacon in Gander for this special report on the Arrow Air crash - 25 years later.
In it, readers will find out what happened on that chilling December morning, and the reaction here and in the United States.
There are stories about the investigations into the crash, articles outlining why some people have never accepted the findings, and a recap of some of the conspiracy theories.
There is also a profile of an inspiring Gander widow and report on a new local book about the disaster.
On the web, we're asking people to tell us their whereabouts when they learned of the crash, and to share any other memories from that time.
The goal is to remember a significant and sombre moment in the province's history.
