I have a personal connection with Moffett Field - from watching the Blue Angels perform there as a kid, to various air shows, to visiting the NASA
Ames space museum there, but most of all because my grandfather was the Chief Electrician for the construction job, He made a dollar a day throughout
the worst years of the Great Depression (early 1930s); a pretty decent salary for those years.
This thread is to share memories of the great air base (officially closed but still in use
) and famous Hangar 1 (currently undergoing
I fly out of SFO (San Francisco International Airport) reasonably often and have managed a few pics of the hangar. I'll share one now from the air
and continue adding more as I get them.
