In 1983, the Goose Bay Airfield gained international recognition when the Boeing 747 carrying NASA's Space Shuttle, landed for refueling. It was a historical event, since this was the space shuttle's first landing outside of the United States.
In fact, the Goose Bay Airport has been designated as the 7th alternate emergency landing site for NASA space shuttle launches because of its ability to accommodate any size aircraft in the world.
Today the runway is home to many allied countries who train at 5 Wing Goose Bay and based on the amount of infrastructure, it makes the area a very strategic area for investment and business.
I have a link provided to the airport corporation's web site with further detail on this facility. It's a great place to do business!
The Trans Labrador Highway is a quality grade gravel road.
But in the meantime there are fast moving transport trucks that present hazards.
Labrador is an excellent opportunity for a great road trip.
