Served at Moffett Field from 63-69. VP-19 63-65, NAS 65-69. Spent 3 years of that time in OMD in HGR 1. Glad that they are restoring it. It would be a shame to lose it.

I can think of SO MANY so much better causes to invest in right now!

I still feel that the hangars (1, 2 and 3) would be an ideal location for a west cost Smithsonian Air & Space museum. There are a lot of rare aircraft on display outdoors that are gradually rotting away and could use some protection.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
