It was 747s. TWA stopped flying 747s about a year ago. JFK-TLV was the last
route to use them. The stops in question weren't at Gander but at Shannon.
Incidentally, TWA was also using this as a crew change point as well.

The last several months of the 747 several trips a week were shown in CRSs as
having a techinical stop at SNN, but not all of them.
