Goose Crash Memorial

Chris Charland was a Boy Scout on a hike when he saw the C-133 crash at Goose Bay. Now, he is a PAO at RCAF base North Bay, Ontario. For several years, he worked to get a simple bronze plaque set up at Goose with the names of the crew that was killed. He contacted the 1st Sq at Andrews, successor to the Dover 1st Sq, and other potential supporters. That never came to fruition so he tried to get a memorial in place at RCAF Trenton, the Canadian transport base. Again, no luck.

Now, he is working to get a memorial at North Bay. The father of the current mayor of North Bay was a CO at Gooose.

Just to let folks know that Chris remembers and is still working the project.
