Exclusive for Podcrashers:On September 11, 2001, millions of US citizens found themselves grappling with the aftermath of terrorist attacks from within the country's borders. Around the world, though, thousands of people found themselves stranded far from home when US airspace closed. During a time of enormous vulnerability, Gander, Newfoundland emerged as the epicenter of kindness, generosity, and friendship during the darkest of times. In this week's Patreon-exclusive layover episode of Take to the Sky: the Air Disaster Podcast, Stephanie shares the experiences and relationships that continue to shine a spotlight on the people of Gander and the day when 38 planes and 6,700 strangers came from away.
