Have you ever wondered what's inside that big building with the NASA logo on it? Join us for a tour on June 7th to find out. Easily visible from I-480, the hangar is the most recognized of NASA Glenn's facilities. Built in the 1940s, NASA Glenn’s Hangar houses various unique and innovative test aircraft, including the S-3B Viking, Learjet Model 25, the Twin Otter Icing Research Aircraft and a T-34C aircraft. It also houses the Flight Operation Administrative Office, flight-planning areas, a mechanical fabrication shop and an avionics shop in support of NASA Research Projects.
