  3. In the third installment of our featured airports series, we will be doing a crossfire between Moncton (CYQM) and Deer Lake (CYDF). The Greater Moncton Roméo LeBlanc International Airport is actually located in the city of Dieppe, 4 nm northeast of Moncton. It can support more than 674,000 passengers and 122,000 aircraft movements every year and is still growing. As with some of our other airports, Moncton is an airport of entry and Canadian Border Services can handle flights with up to 300 passengers but have handled some Boing 747s which can have up to 580 passengers. Moncton is home to Canada's largest flight school, the Moncton Flight College which can handle upwards of 450 students at a time between their two campuses. Deer Lake Regional Airport is run by the Deer Lake Regional Airport Authority and is the second busiest airport in Newfoundland after St. John's International. Deer Lake Airport dates back to 1953 when construction began. In the autumn of 1955, a 4,000 ft (1.22 km) gravel strip was opened for operation and would later be extended to 5,000 ft (1.52 km) in 1959 and finally paved in 1963. In 1968, it was decided that there would be a new terminal built to replace the older one though it would not start construction until 1990. With the excitement of the new terminal, Eastern Provincial Airways (EPA) announced their new routes in and out of Deer Lake using the Boeing 737-200 aircraft. Over the years, the runway has been extended to its final length of 8,005 ft (2.44 km). On our April 5th installment of Moncton Monday, join us for a crossfire between Moncton (CYQM) and Deer Lake (CYDF) while we reconnect the Canadian East Coast.

  8. In our second installment of our featured airport series, we will be featuring CFB Goose Bay (CYYR). Canadian Forces Base (Goose Bay) is a Canadian Air Force base located in the municipality of Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The Goose Bay Airport is principally owned by the Department of National Defence, but is the major airport servicing the Labrador region of the province. Runway 08/26 is 11,051 feet making Goose Bay boosting the longest runway east of Toronto. While the airport is serviced by the Canadian Border Services Agency, the office is small and international flights to/from Goose Bay are not normally handled by this airport, but the airport has been known to host many of the world’s largest aircraft including the Antonov 225 and the Airbus A380. During the cold war, CFB Goose Bay was the site of the first US nuclear weapons in Canada, when in 1950 the US Air Force stationed 11 1561 Fat Man atomic bombs at the base some time in the summer and flew them out in December. In 1983, a NASA Boeing 747 transport aircraft carrying the Space Shuttle Enterprise landed at CFB Goose Bay to refuel while on its way to Europe for a tour in France and the United Kingdom. This was the first time that the shuttle had ever "landed" outside of the United States. On September 11th, 2001, because of the 9/11 attacks and part of Operation Yellow Ribbon, seven transatlantic flights landed in Goose Bay when the airspace in North America closed. It was one of the first Canadian airports to receive the diverted traffic. On our March 1st installment of Moncton Monday, join us in Goose Bay (CYYR) as we reconnect the Canadian East Coast.
