Look two posts up. The ClipSyndicate link still works.

Thanks...I'll check that out at home. It's not working here at school, but maybe my district's software is blocking it.

Here is a little video that also mentions the Canada (Gander) contributions during 9/11. I just tried the one at ClipSyndicate and it still works. What a great video to share with students.

Made unplanned fuel stop (weather, weight) on way East in 2000 in middle of night. They came in to the secure area (so we didn't have to deal with customs) and opened the snack bar and duty-free shops. Super nice people. They have their own time zone that is a half-hour off anywhere else, as I recall. Stopped on way back, too, but that was planned.
