Unreferenced content moved here from Bangor article[edit]

During the Second World War, Bangor's Dow Airfield (later Dow Air Force Base) became a major embarkation point for U.S. Army Air Force planes flying to and from Europe. Photographs and obituaries of 112 servicemen from Bangor who gave their lives in the war are preserved in the Book of Honor at the Bangor Public Library. There was also a small prisoner-of-war camp in Bangor for captured German soldiers, a satellite of the much larger Camp Houlton in northern Maine. After the war, Dow Airfield became a Strategic Air Command Base, and was subsequently converted into the Bangor International Airport. Also in 1992, a series of NASA scientific research flights carried out from Bangor, using a converted U-2 spy plane, proved that the hole in the ozone layer had grown over the northern hemisphere. This discovery prompted an acceleration of the global phase-out of CFCs under the Copenhagen Amendment to the Montreal Protocol. --Cornellier (talk) 14:53, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
