Unexpected Visitors, The: 9/11 Silver Linings

Available on Prime Video
After the attacks of the 11th of September, the U.S.A. closed the airspace over America. More than 5,000 landings were cancelled. 255 machines on their way to New York were re-routed to Canada - 38 directly to Gander. This small town with a population of 9,500 was asked to take in 6,140 unexpected visitors. And they did, for five days, with hospitality, self-sacrifice and compassion.
