CBC News Reports From The Past
As a prelude to the 70th Anniversary of the Sabena crash on September 18, 1946 , CBC Radio aired two archived news reports with reference to the accident. These radio reports were downloaded from CBC Podcasts and edited for this webpage.
The first news clip is from a live report made in 1946 shortly after the accident in Gander. This report relates the rescue mission that had just commenced.
The second news clip is from a telephone interview made with Commander Stewart Graham (retired) at the age of 93 in 2011. In this interview he relates the rescue mission using the helicopter for the very first time to rescue civilians.
