Hangar 574 Demolished


Metal Hangar 574 has been leveled to the ground in the name of progress


For those who remember, the hangar was abandoned and had become a dangerous eyesore to say the least


The Metal Nose Docks were originally built and known as “T” Hangars

d1-494x352 e1-494x352

These were the B-36 days when only the wings were covered to protect the maintenance crews from the elements


As the hangar was leveled the Museum was able to save the only two remaining original “light fixtures” that were hanging way up in a far forgotten corner of the hangar

We plan to put them to good use. They will be installed on the outside hangar wall framing the Museum entrance. A very nice piece of Ramey History where it belongs, the RAFBHA Museum
