How many know that the US Navy once had a small fleet of these giant cruisers of the air? They are all gone now.
The one tie we have had to this unique facet of aviation history is a few former hangers. I had the pleasure a dozen years ago to go inside Moffett Field's Hangar One. Before that I loved driving by on 101 and seeing it standing open.
Now sad news that it is being torn down.
