Way to go Anna (and to all who sent emails to the Navy), however "it ain't over til it's over".

I hope they save it because the idiot city council in Tustin wants to demolish the south hangar on their former base.

At first observation the hangar may well look like an eyesore. However, if you take the time to research it and discover the history and the amazing structure you might grow to appreciate why there is so much support for saving this amazing building.

Jane is correct the hangar has great historic importance to aviation and the community. As a former photographer for NASA I did many photos inside the hangar and on top of it! What a view from the top during airshows! But you cant help but be awed when you are on the inside it is just enormous! Keep at it folks we can save this piece of history yet!
