This old zeppelin hanger once housed the USS Macon, which crashed off the California coastline near Big Sur back in 1935.

The hanger has recently been going through a much needed bit of renovation and has been stripped of it's outer shell, now looking much like the skeleton of the mighty airships it once housed.

Hopefully the renovation will be completed soon. It takes special permissions to be able to walk on this old dismantled Navy air base. If that were not the case I would have been back to show images of the skeleton of this building that resides there currently.
