You are looking at building #800, a squadron hangar, built of wood from standard plans for an OBH-2. Four of these hangars were built in 1942 and 1943. Each one faces the airport anchorage apron and has ten rolling doors that opened up to accommodate a B-24 or B-17.

The heavy demands on aircraft with continual training, likely required long hours by the air support and maintenance crews.

Built at an original cost of $1750,000 are about 122 feet wide by 88 feet deep and have a one story shed on the north side. A coal fired coal steam boiler in each hangar provided heat. Each hangar had a restroom and maintenance shop area on the north side.

The heavy demand on aircraft, from continuous training, required long hours or work by the maintenance crews.
