  Goose - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Goose (plural geese) is the general English name for a considerable number of birds, belonging to the family Anatidae.
In the West, farmyard geese are descended from the Greylag, but in Asia the swan goose has been farmed for at least as long.
Goose in its origins is one of the oldest words of the Indo-European languages, the modern names deriving from the proto-Indo-European root, ghans, hence Sanskrit hamsa (feminine hamsii), Latin anser, Greek khén etc.

 Goose - LoveToKnow 1911
In Scotland this goose continues to breed sparingly in several parts of the Highlands and in certain of the Hebrides, the nests being generally placed in long heather, and the eggs seldom exceeding five or six in number.
Thus the grey lag goose is the grey goose which in England when the name was given was not migratory but lagged behind the other wild species at the season when they betook themselves to their northern breedingquarters.
The largest living goose is that called the Chinese, Guinea or swan-goose, Cygnopsis cygnoides, and this is the stock whence the domestic geese of several eastern countries have sprung.

The Spruce Goose is a nickname commonly given to the Hughes H-4 Hercules, an aircraft designed and built by the Hughes Aircraft company.
Though the project was always unlikely to produce a useful aircraft given the technological limitations of the era, the H-4 Hercules in some senses presaged the massive transport aircraft of the late 20th century, such as the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy and the Antonov An-124 and An-225.
The Spruce Goose demonstrated that the physical and aerodynamic principles which make flight possible are not limited by the size of the aircraft.

CFB Goose Bay is currently the site of NATO tactical flight training in Canada and is home to permanent detachments from the Luftwaffe (Germany) and the Aeronautica Militare (Italy), as well as hosting temporary training deployments from the Royal Air Force (United Kingdom) and the Royal Netherlands Air Force.
Goose Bay's strategic location as one of the closest North American air bases (by flying time) to the Soviet Union ensured a prominent role as fighter interceptor squadrons were posted to the base in a bid to ward off Soviet incursions of North American airspace.
Goose Bay was a very attractive training facility for these air forces in light of the high population concentration in their countries, as well as numerous laws preventing low-level flying.
