Blimp Hangar

Tustin Blimp Hangar

One of two historic blimp hangars located on the former Marine Corps Air Station in Tustin, California, in the center of Orange County and not far from Irvine.

These were built for Navy(?) surveillance aircraft during World War II and remained in use until the base was closed in the 1990s. They’re gigantic structures, holding some sort of record IIRC, but from what I hear no one has come up with a plan to preserve them, and both are supposed to be demolished.
