McClain (Herbert A.) Photographs
Huge wooden blimp hangar built during WWII entirely of wood (to conserve strategic metal) and housed U.S. Navy "Lighter-than-air" blimps. The blimp was used for patrol along the west coast of California to watch for enemy submarines. At one time there were 4 blimps serviced and crews were billeted there at the Lighter-than-air Station in Santa Ana, near Tustin.
