Hangar One’s future in doubt after Congress cuts funds

Thursday, July 14, 2011

imageNot good news for Hangar One, Moffett Field’s historic former Navy airship station built in the 1930s for the dirigible USS Macon and one of Silicon Valley’s most enduring landmarks. A House committee has removed $32.8 million from the budget that was to have paid for new siding for the building, one of the world’s largest free-standing structures.

Add: The old toxic siding is almost stripped off and folks at NASA Ames Research Center, which owns Hangar One, aren’t sure now how long the metal beneath it will have to remain exposed, the Mountain View Voice says.

Noted: Lots of possibilities for the landmark, from the city of Mountain View maybe taking ownership, to its being torn down, the paper says.
