Tustin Legacy

I was in southern California for a day and I flew in and out of John Wayne Airport in Orange County.  On the approach to the airport, I got a good view of Tustin.  This is a retired military airfield and, in its earlier days, it had been an airship base.  It still has two large airship hangars in the same style as those I have seen before at Moffett Field and Tillamook.

After my meetings had wrapped up and I was heading back to the airport, I took a few minutes to divert past the hangars and to grab a couple of shots of them.  They are impressive structures and appear to be in great condition.  I have no idea whether they are used much at this point and who looks after them but either they are well taken care of or the southern California climate doesn’t cause them too much trouble.
