Here's some information on the history of Gander Aiport from Wikipedia:

Construction of the airport began in 1936 and it was opened in 1938, with its first landing on January 11 of that year, by Captain Douglas Fraser flying a Fox Moth of Imperial Airways. Within a few years it had four runways and was the largest airport in the world. Its official name until 1941 was Newfoundland Airport.

The airport grew in importance through the early decades of the jet age in the 1950s-1970s with its importance being amplified by being situated almost precisely on the great circle route between the major cities of the U.S. East Coast and London.

The airfield's location was sufficiently close to Europe to allow the piston-engined planes of the 1940s to make a non-refueled transatlantic flight and the same qualities made it ideal for the fuel-inefficient jet aircraft of the post-war decades.
