A model of an airship hangar is displayed July 18, 2019, at Scott Air Force Base, Ill. The model, completed by American Model Builders, Inc. from Brentwood, Mo., replicates the hangar that was on Scott Air Field during the 1920s and 1930s at the height of the lighter-than-air era in U.S. military history. The current runway on Scott is the location where the hangar once stood, at a height of 15 stories tall, and the hangar was capable of holding an airship that spanned approximately three football fields in length. This model is part of a larger project, headed by wing historian Mark Wilderman, to document the lighter-than-air era at Scott with models of airships and the hangar, as well as preserving photos and video footage of Scott’s importance in history.
