Abandoned WWII Blimp Hangar by sticksandstones

Abandoned WWII Blimp Hangar

Tillamook, Oregon is home to one of the few remaining WWII blimp hangars in the United States. There were two hangars here - one is still in operational use (pics to follow), the other is this one......which burned down in 1992. Most of the times with my abandoned photography, I don't know the "story" - don't know what happened to the structure.....what caused it to be abandoned...but this one is an example where we know what happened: http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19920824&slug=1509062. I'm glad they left the concrete structures standing...what an amazing piece of our nation's history.
What a very interesting part of history for sure

Very expressive shot. Fav.
$200.000,- worth of hay… that’s a lot of hay… Must have burned with a vengeance...
