Towering almost 200 feet above the fields east of Elizabeth City, NC
one of four massive concrete column pairs
that remain from the world's largest wooden building. Completed in 1943, Airdock #2 was part of the Weeksville Naval Air Station
for lighter than air ships, better known as blimps. This hanger which was destroyed by fire in 1995 had 7.5 acres under its giant wooden roof. The slightly smaller but still huge Airdock #1
remains nearby and today supports commercial air ships. Canon 40D, 1/60s, f/16, ISO 100, Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom at 17mm with a Singh-Ray LB warming polarizer.
