I went to a special presentation about the USS Macon reconnaissance mission down into the depths off of the Monterey Coast. It was fascinating. There are desks and componenents, including one of the orignal sparrowhawk-something-or-other planes! You can still see the logo on the canvas of the wing!

Hangar 1 is a beautiful structure, a reminder of an era long gone. The hangar should be preserved barring any danger to life or limp. I drove past Moffet a few years back and was struck again by it's beauty. We are too quick in America to remove visible proof of our proud history. Keep Hangar 1 shining in the California sun.

Growing up on the peninsula, NASA AMES/Moffett Field was a regular field trip destination and I can't do justice or even really remember the impression Hangar 1 had on me a kid. Maybe the word "big" is that needs to be said, but I remember being fascinated by the trussing and trying to work out in my head how I could make something like it out of Lego.

In the late 90's, NASA held an open house and I had a chance to visit Hangar 1 again, a little older, but just as excited to see... no that's not right... to stand just feet away from lunar rocks brought back from our Moon on the Apollo missions.

A few years later I was working at Netscape in Mountain View and will never forget walking across campus in one of the first days following the Columbia accident looking over towards Hangar 1, framed perfectly between two buildings with the campus flagpole flying the American flag at half staff.

I just can't imagine Hanger 1 gone.
