"Slight Mechanical Problem With the Plane"

As I was on my first of a number of flights across the Atlantic, the captain came on the intercom and said we were making an emergency landing in Goose Bay, Canada. We were all taken off the plane (it was about 12 AM) and taken by bus to a small building with no windows and little heat. It was rather cold since it was January. After about 3 hours we were put back on the bus, and taken back to the same plane. We boarded and the captain said "We think we have found and fixed the problem". Not the most reassuring words when flying over a large ocean in January. Luckily we did make the flight just fine.


I apologize; but that is the entire extent of my experience in Goose Bay. I need to return someday. I only included it here for completeness. It was also my first time in Canada.
