Proceeds from Gala Honoring First Ferry Flight to Help Build RAFFC Hangar

On November 10, 2015, the North Atlantic Aviation Museum in Gander, Newfoundland, has paired up with the Gander Rotary Club to host a 75th Anniversary Gala that will honour the first fleet of Hudson bombers to leave Gander. These seven bombers, led by Capt. Don Bennett, were the first of almost 10,000 to be delivered by the RAF Ferry Command/Transport Command by war’s end.

The proceeds from this event will go toward building a Ferry Command Memorial Hall which will house the museum’s rare and precious Hudson, and other community projects through Rotary.

The Gala has already sold out and there’s a waiting list for any tickets that may become available. The museum would like to thank everyone who has supported them and if you would like to help them preserve their Hudson please contact them:
