Tillamook Air Museum – World’s largest wooden clear-span building

I stopped in Tillamook on a rainy day to see the air museum. From the highway the building looked impressive and is apparently the world’s largest wooden clear-span building. I pulled into the parking lot and found my way inside the former Navy hanger used to house K-class blimps. The museum is slightly deceiving however as it only fills up maybe a ΒΌ of the 1072 foot (326 m) hanger. It was a disappointment but it was also Tillamook, a small town in Oregon, so a huge air museum would not be logical.
