has a great post today about the history of Hangar One and its possible demise.

Hangar One is Silicon Valley landmark. Towering above Moffett Field, the huge buidling was originally built to shelter the airship USS Macon — a flying aircraft carrier constructed by the US Navy in the 1930s. The structure is contaminated with PCBs, however, so the Navy is considering clean-up options, including tearing the building down. Thankfully, a group of local aviation buffs have rallied to save the historic structure. The Navy is set to decide the building’s fate in November, so the race is on to preserve Hangar One before it disappears forever.
