Hangar "A" Demolition
Hangar "A" is being demolished as part of the preparation for construction of the new Fareham Borough Council Innovation Centre.
Photo by Terry Coombes clearly shows how the hangars were designed to require the minimum of precious wartime materials and to be built without the need for cranes. Today they would probably use steel portal frame construction with far fewer components but a greater weight of steel requiring a crane for assembly.
