Hangar One, an imposing structure that stands at Moffett Field, California, was once a popular airship hangar back in its glory days. Now, this huge structure stand firmly, still erect but with no airship to service. Some say save the landmark hangar. Others just seem turn its back on that idea.
Now, Google principals have turned their sites on saving this wonderful historical structure.
Ken Ambrose, the director of H211 LLC, told a subcommittee of the Moffett Field Restoration Advisory Board that Google’s top honchos are willing to pay 100 percent of the cost to restore the famous hangar and be the base of the honchos of Google’s plane fleet, that being two jumbo jets and other Gulfstream jets.
The crusaders at the meeting were happy of Google’s proposal and appeared interested in teaming up with the community for the restoration of this magnificent structure. Ambrose said that the Google’s leaders are not interested in placing a huge Google symbol at the sides of the hangar. Instead Google proposed use is subleasing the hangar for other uses such as what the preservationists proposed, a major air and space museum.
Lenny Siegel, one of the individuals who has placed a lot of effort in saving the hanger said that “it appears to be the only thing going, to save the hangar.” NASA’s request of budget to help preserve the hangar has had little support coming from the U.S. Congress.
