A brief History of Goose Bay Aerodrome (Labrador). In September 1941, work began on the airfield to serve as a landing and refueling stop for transatlantic flights, and three 7,000-foot runways were built in only 79 days. During the war, 24,000 Canadian and American aircraft passed through Goose Bay, making it the busiest airport in the world during this time. Please wait for invoice before paying.
