    Really neat picture.

    The Lakehurst Naval Air Station museum sells little scraps of the Los Angeles as a fundraiser for like $60 or so. It would almost be worth the nights I'd have to spend on the couch. :D

    It could do a u-turn in there.

    Here's another nice shot of the Los Angeles and Hangar One at Lakehurst. The original that I have is about 4"x8".

    Spent some time at Lakehurst during my Navy days and yes, Hanger 1 has to be seen to be believed. It is absolutely huge to the point that it creates its own weather INSIDE!

    Front and back of photo: people waiting at Hangar One, Lakehurst NAS. If anybody knows German, perhaps you can translate the back of the photo. hangar 1.jpg back of hangar 1 photo.jpg

    "The Mother of all Airships". Hindenburg peeking out of Hangar One, Lakehurst. This is one of a series of four that I have and will post others soon. Hindenburg at Lakehurst.jpg

    This is from the same series of photos as the previous post. The distortion on the lower left of the ship is just a reflection from when I took a photo of the photo. Hindenburg at lakehurst #2.jpg
