    Hangar,hanger

    A long time ago I saw an old picture of airplanes stacked nose down in a hangar and the tails were tied with a rope from the ceiling . It was done so that more aircraft could be stacked in the hangar . Has anybody seen that picture ? I wasn't dreaming ! I have searched the net and cannot find it .

    A Goggle search for "Piper Cub Hangar" found this:

    No ropes, though...

    Take the engines off, you can store planes even tighter.

    Mind you, there are MUCH sloppier ways of doing it...

    In hindsight, that last one is a criminal act!

    I'm trying to figure out what the OTHER airplanes are, other than the Focke Wulf. They look like trainers.

    Then there's this one (Dulles Jet Center during a snow storm a decade or so back):

    That was one expensive snow storm...

    I knew a guy (anybody remember Quades Flight School at MGJ?) who stored his Cub that way to save space in his hangar. Looks like they have some sort of support so it's not sitting on the cowl or crankshaft.

    Probably locks it down, too. Could be an ugly domino effect, otherwise.
