Goodyear Airdock by F16CrewChief Goodyear Airdock by F16CrewChief
One of the first trips I made on my current job was to the Akron OH area.

I thought I would look to see if Goodyear's airship hangar still existed. I was pleased to see the structure srtill standing.

This hangar was built for the construction of the ZRS-4 Akron and ZRS-5 Macon.

I have had a huge interest in dirigibles from a very young age and I was very pleased to see this!

Biggest single floor building in the world (for airships/air-docks, at least) now that the Cargo Lift airship hangar over in Germany, was turned into a "water theme" park! Love the air dock!! (Almost as much as Hangar One at Moffett Field!) Thank you so much for sharing this picture!! Please share more!!

It is amazing at how large this building is. It has been known to have it's own weather systems, it has rained inside, so I hear!
Here is a picture of the Airdock at midnight. [link]

Is it listed as a Historical Place like Hanger #1 in Moffet Field here in CA?

I had no idea that the hangar was still around. I've always been fascinated with airships and keep hoping that they make a come back someday.

Did you see that Goodyear will build Zeppelin semi-rigids to replace the blimps.

No I didn't see that....sounds cool though! I heard that Zeppelin is selling a lot of the Zeppelin NT's over in Europe. Someday I will get a ride on one of those.
