Hangar One is being dismantled
For most people their sole knowledge of giant, rigid airships is the Hindenberg and the fire that destroyed it.
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.
