Long Description:
The plaque says, "The foundations for each hanger consists of some 1,600 puree-concrete piles, 48-feet deep for Hanger No. 1 and 65-feet deep for Hanger No. 2.

Helium Tank Buildings

Each helium tank building is a one story, 941-square foot concrete structure 30 feet long, 30 feet wide, and 30 feet high. They also have a 6-ft by 6foot concrete chimney that is about 46 feet tall. Each building had two 12-foot metal roof doors on the wall nearest the hanger beside them.

Mooring Mats and Masts

Each circular mooring mat was made of concrete and measured approximately 600 feet in diameter. Mooring mats 1, 2, and 3 were the first mats build adjacent to Hanger 1.

Mooring Mats 4, 5, and 6 were situated to the east of Hanger 2.


In its conversion to Marine Corps Air Facility (MCAF) Santa Ana for the Korean War in 1951, two paved runways were built over the primary mooring mat."
