The Design and Construction of a Three Bay Aluminium Aircraft Hangar at London Airport

In May, 1950, the Ministry of Civil Aviation invited tenders for the design and construction of a three-bay hangar at London Airport. With a view to reducing maintenance costs to a minimum, the roof structure was to be fabricated in aluminium alloy but the stanchions, at the discretion of the tenderer, could be either steel or aluminium. This paper will demonstrate that aluminium is a material to be seriously considered for work of this nature. L.E. Ward
