Although the planes are long gone, the base remains.
The hangar seen here was converted in 1977 to house the navy’s department store, the Naval Exchange. Looking nothing like a hangar on the inside (and nothing like a department store on the outside), its parking lot is what you see here: 1942 concrete, the aircraft mooring points still plainly visible today.
Despite its makeover, vestiges of hangar life remain inside. There are aircraft power outlets, and storage rooms that were once offices have hideous green paint from the 1950s.
