NAS Tillamook Air Museum

My recent visit to the Moffett Field Museum and its metal construction airship hangar, called Hangar One, reminded me of the wooden construction airship hangar at the Tillamook Air Museum. There are a few posts about Tillamook and how its hangar was built and they can best be found using the search window, just paste Tillamook into it and select ENTER. But, in the mean time, I hope you enjoy these photos 🙂
