Cold Hangar Former Fliegerhorst Deelen

This is one of the remaining German hangars that belonged to Fliegerhorst Deelen.
The hangar should resemble a farmer's barn from a distance. The front of the hangar was used after the war. During the war, the front was open for planes to get in and out.
This type of hangar was unheated and was therefore called a cold hangar.
