  1. I thought that was the old airship hanger at NAS Lakehurst (used by the Hindenburg, no less). I couldn’t think of another hanger that was that large.

    1. Aside from Lakehurst, there’s a few other large blimp hangars still around. Tillamook, OR has one (the other burned down), Tustin, CA and one of the California Naval Air Stations (Lemoore?) still have two. I’m pretty sure there is a set somewhere on the East Coast as well.
