Regarding Mr. Braxton's comment:
"Hangar One is the Statue of Liberty of the West Coast," Braxton said.
I am a little unclear how Mr. Braxton came to the conclusion that the Hanger compares more favorably than say the Golden Gate Bridge or the Oakland Bay Bridge. Such unfounded comparisons make all other points he made suspect.

Hanger One is a part of South Bay history that should be preserved at all costs. My father remembers back in the days of the Macon and Akron how traffic on the two lane 101 would come to a standstill when one of the dirigibles would come home. The original skin should just be recoated periodically as needed to contain the PCB's and could be paid for by a public preservation fund. This would be the most cost effective and esthetic way to keep such an important part of Sunnyvale history and could continue to be used as needed. Anyone who thinks differently should pursue an opportunity to walk into the hanger. Once you do,an experience beyond belief will ingulf your senses and you will immediately realize what I am saying.
