Gander Aviation Muesum


Atlantic Ferry Pilot Memorial
Air Vice - Marshal
D.C.T Bennett, C.B., C.B.E, D.S.O

Was the Captain of a Lockheed Hudson Bomber which departed Gander 2233 GMT on the night of November the Tenth, 1940 and landed at Aldergrove Ireland. 0945 GMT the next morning.

The aircraft here is identical to the one that made this flight which was the first successful trans Atlantic crossing from Gander.  It is mounted here on this site in commemoration of that event and the many thousands of men and aircraft who have followed since then.

Better be not at all than not be noble.
