New Hope To Save Moffett's Hanger One

Wednesday, July 26, 2006

There's new hope for preservationists trying to save an historic landmark at Moffett Field.

They've convinced the Navy to reconsider the fate of the base's huge Hanger One. The huge dome-shaped building was built in 1933 to house massive Dirigible's.

The Navy announced plans last May to tear it down to get rid of toxic chemicals that were leaking from its skin into nearby groundwater.

Demolition would cost $12 million. Decontamination would cost double that.
