Have you ever wondered what's inside that big building with the NASA logo on it? Join us for a tour on August 3 to find out.
Easily visible from I-480, the hangar is the most recognized of NASA Glenn's facilities. It was built in the 1940s and is large enough to hold several aircraft of varying sizes.
Known to employees as the Flight Research Building, the hangar is home to many unique and innovative aircraft, including the S-3B Viking, Learjet Model 25 and the Twin Otter Icing Research Aircraft. It also houses the Flight Operation Administrative Office, a pilots lounge, flight-planning areas, a full-scale metal battery and an avionics shop.
