NJ2156 : Collapsed Hangar

taken 8 years ago, near to Thomshill, Moray, Great Britain

Collapsed Hangar
Collapsed Hangar
The old Nissen hut which has served the club as a hangar on two different airfields for almost half a century collapsed under the weight of snow on the night of 11-12 January, just when we thought the worst was over and the thaw had started. NJ2156 : Highland Gliding Club shows what it looked like before it was painted green; it was not a very beautiful object at the best of times. The object on the ground is a wing of one of the gliders which was inside, and which we have been able to extricate relatively unscathed.
