Book Description
Where Eagles Lie Fallen is celebrated master storyteller Gary Collins’s solemn tribute to the American servicemen and servicewomen who lost their lives aboard Arrow Air Flight 1285 when it crashed in Gander, Newfoundland, on December 12, 1985.This is a story of a tremendous loss of life, of the 101st Airborne Division of the U.S. military – the world-renowned “Screaming Eagles.” Eyewitnesses to the tragedy and the surviving loved ones of the lost American soldiers reveal for the first time the profound effect this event had on them, and how it still affects them today.

Within these pages you will meet “Buckeye” Brady, “Keybird” Kee, Michael Shayne “Eliot” Stack, “Ziggy” Ziegler, “Jenny” Word, and Sergeant Christine M. McCleery, American servicemen and servicewomen lost aboard Arrow Air Flight 1285.

Among those who assisted Gary Collins in the reconstruction of that fateful day are Robyn Stack, mother of Michael Shayne “Eliot” Stack, Gander Deputy Mayor Sandra Kelly, Air Traffic Controller Glenn Blandford, Mayor Doug Sheppard, and Gander resident Pat Kane.

About the Author
Gary Collins was born in a small, two-storey house by the side of the sea in the town of Hare Bay, Bonavista North. He finished school at Brown Memorial High in the same town and resides in Hare Bay still.

He spent forty years in the logging and sawmilling business along with his father, Theophilus, and son Clint. Gary was once Newfoundland’s youngest fisheries guardian. He managed log drives for years down spring rivers, spent seven seasons driving tractor trailers over ice roads and the Beaufort Sea of Canada’s Western Arctic, and has been involved in the crab, lobster, and cod commercial fisheries. His writing career began when he was asked to write eulogies for deceased friends and family. He spent a full summer employed as a prospector before he wrote Soulis Joe’s Lost Mine. He liked the work so much, he went back to school to earn his prospecting certificate.

His favourite pastimes are reading and playing guitar at his log cabin, and now, “banging rocks.” Gary Collins is married to the former Rose Gill, and together they have three children and three grandchildren.
