In October of last year, Gander’s 103 SAR Squadron was removed from their Hangar 1 at 9 Wing Gander after the discovery of a large concentration of asbestos in dust. They are still unsure of where the source is, but cleaning began on December 4. They have cleaned in sections, sealing off the safe areas and moving onto the next area. The alert base has been cleaned and their two Cormorant helicopters have been brought back in so that operations can begin. They were given hangar space in the Canadian Coast Guard in St. John’s while cleaning was underway, reports CBC.
