Subject: [CPEO-MEF] PRESERVATION: No plan/money to re-skin Moffett Field's (CA) Hangar One
Moffett Field's Hangar One Stripped to the Bone, Renovation Plans Stalled

The steel frame of the historic Hangar One, the 1930s airship station at Moffett Field in Mountain View, looms like the silver bones of a giant prehistoric beast. And for now, its future seems just about as precarious.

Within the next few days, workers will be stripping the last PCB and asbestos laden panels from the structure. But after years of meetings and congressional hearings, efforts to preserve Hangar One are stalled.

Lenny Siegel with the Save Hangar One Committee says the big news about Hangar One is there is no news. "There's no money in the federal budget to re-skin it," says Siegel "And NASA headquarters has not even responded to a proposal by H211, a company that's owned by the founders of Google, for them to lease the hanger in exchange for recovering it."
