The Town of Gander hosted a memorial service today at Gander Heritage Memorial Park in recognition of the 32nd Anniversary of the Arrow Air Crash that claimed the lives of all 248 passengers and 8 crew members that were on board. The aircraft was carrying U.S. troops to their home base in Fort Campbell, Kentucky after completing a six-month deployment on a peacekeeping mission in the Sinai. The aircraft made a stop in Gander and crashed shortly after takeoff. We will always remember their lives and ultimate sacrifice. ... See MoreSee Less
