Blimp Hangar


The Goodyear Airship hangar in Akron, Ohio is the world's largest building without internal supports. With 55 million cubic feet of air, it is so large that it can create its own weather. During sudden temperature changes clouds form in the top of the structure creating rain.

Former Clevlander now in Florida (just had to get away from severe winter weather for health, now over 45 years)- but a proud born and brought up Clevelander 70 years ago. I believe the space rocket hanger at Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, is so big and high that it forms it's own weather too.
