We are Italian and moved to Mountain View a few years ago...but the Hangar One is so important to us to our heritage as well! My husband's grandfather flew and landed in MoffetField (and into the Hangar One) with a military plane at the biginning of the 20th century for the Italian Air Force and always talked about it. For us it was impressive to remember part of our family history looking at the Hangar One when we moved here but also so sad to know that it is going to go down!!!Let's keep american (and not only) history alive! Grazie Francesca
