Gander NF Hotel Discounts
Gander has long standing ties to aviation. Right in the airport is a tribute to Gander's fingerprint in flight called Atlantic Wings. Most of the streets in the city are named after great aviators. The largest airfield until WWII was here, and it was designated a landing location for the shuttle program at NASA. The Turkey Farm is a strategic defense listening post to protect all of North America. But there have been tragic crashes as well, like the Arrow Air in 1985 which killed 256 US Army special forces soldiers and civilians. The city is named for famed aviator Commander Gander and his birthday is celebrated every August at the Festival of Flight.
