Mystery hangar


I recently saw this abandoned hangar. In the vein of the kids' game, where's CaptainVector? And for bonus points, what's the story behind this?

  1. Looks like a spray operation hangar

    1. Actually, the sprayers are across town at the county airport.

  2. I don't know the story behind it, but it sure does look cool, and I'm sure it has an interesting story.

    1. And strangely, not much information about it seems to exist - even at the local historical society.

  3. Is it Denver Stapleton ?

  4. Win Field, Fort Stockton, TX

    The site of this original Fort Stockton Airport was reused during WW2 as Win Field.

    Win Field was used during WW2 as an auxiliary field for the use of Gibbs Field (which became the present-day Fort Stockton Airport).

    The Pacific Air School conducted primary flight training under contract to the military at Gibbs Field,using the PT-17 biplane.

    Win Field was named for Fort Stockton resident H. L. Winfield.
