Race to save last historic piece of Hangar One

With Hangar One's restoration funding unexpectedly lost in last year's political re-shuffling in Washington, D.C., preservationists are fighting to save one last thing before it's too late -- the hangar's unique corrugated windows.

In just over two months, the siding and windows will be torn off the landmark building, which will be left a bare steel skeleton unless funding for restoration can be secured.

The windows on the top half of the hangar were designed to withstand the explosion of a 1930s airship filled with hydrogen, said architect and preservationist Linda Ellis in a presentation to the Moffett Field Restoration Advisory Board last week.
