On a related note, have you seen what they are doing to the blimp hanger at Moffet Field in Sunnyvale, California? They recently stripped the asbestos shell and it is a skeleton. My dad worked in the hanger in 1959 when he was in the Navy. He said the hanger was so large it had it’s own microclimate inside. Condensation would gather inside and rain down on the Navy boys.
A great great shot. Wonderful historical image. Those ladders sure scare me though. :-)
Unbelievable – more Sci Fi than science fiction!
