Back in the mid-80's I was on a Sabena 747 flying BRU-JFK that had to
make a technical stop (fuel) in Gander.  Anyway, that's what we were
told by the crew.  Prior to the stop, the Captain told us that the
headwinds were so strong that, at one point in the flight, we were
only moving forward at about 200mph.
