Brooks City-Base officials unveiled a plan Monday to restore a rare wooden World War I aircraft hangar as the centerpiece of a memorial plaza honoring pioneers of military aviation and space travel.

Rudy Purificato, a longtime military historian who is producing a public television documentary series on Brooks to air this year, called the plan a “grand design” for the historic Hangar 9 and adjacent Sidney Brooks Memorial, where the base's namesake is buried.

“It's a wonderful design and concept for one of the unique historical sites in the United States,” said Purificato, who has collected stories and interviews from the base's long, colorful past.
