Aired during the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, Operation Yellow Ribbon details the events after the closure of US and Canadian airspace on the September 11th, 2001 attacks. For the first time, North American airspace had been closed, and the small town of Gander, Newfoundland, a town of 10,000 people and 500 hotel rooms, was tasked with landing, housing, and providing for 6,600 stranded passengers and 473 crew members.

The documentary originally aired on February 27, 2010, as part of NBC's coverage of the Vancouver Olympics. NBC chose this story because it highlights the special relationship between Canadians and Americans.

Viewers who wish to contact the people of Gander can reach out to the Town Hall Web site (http://gandercanada.com/) or to the local newspaper, the Gander Beacon (http://www.ganderbeacon.ca/).

Viewers interested in contributing to the scholarship fund can go here (https://tcfapp.org/SecureFolder/Schol...).

Astonishingly, I could not find this uploaded anywhere. I originally caught it during the Olympics broadcast on NBC, but couldn't find anything about it afterwards on their site. Ended up finding it here: http://adf.ly/j1nex
