Description

By latitude

Description:
If you visit Argentia, Newfoundland you can find several abandoned Naval Bunkers such as these. They are empty but several are open so you can go inside. They are next to the huge runways and open to the public.

Naval Station Argentia is a former base of the US Navy that operated from 1941-94 following the expropriation of land formed by a small natural bay called Little Placentia Sound. Over 400 families were displaced although several obtained work at the base.

The air station was used to base convoy protection, coastal patrol and anti-submarine aircraft, both land-based aircraft and seaplanes.In 1944, Argentia served as one of the two stopover bases for the refueling, maintenance, and crew changes of the six US Navy K-ships (blimps) that made the first transatlantic crossings of non-rigid airships.
US President FDR visited the base in 1941 and inspected the base construction and later met Winston Churchill here.
