Damaged Hangar Roof
A combination of factors led to the poor condition and eventual demolition of the Glynco hangars, including shifting military priorities away from Lighter-Than-Air, roof damage by Hurricane Dora in 1964, and the large amount of money needed to maintain and repair the enormous wooden buildings. This photo shows roof damage from the inside of a hangar. The hangars were finally demolished in 1971. Courtesy of FLETC.
