Oregon: Tillamook – Tillamook Air Museum, a former airship Naval base

Tillamook Air Museum is located in a rural setting close to the Oregon Pacific coast. In World War II this was the site of a Naval base used to deploy K Class airships (blimps) across the Pacific ocean to detect enemy ships and submarines. The base was decommissioned in the 1940s and fell into disrepair. Today, the remaining hanger, Hanger B – one of the largest wooden buildings in the World, is the location of the Tillamook Air Museum.
