The Pioneer Flight Museum acquired an original World War I hangar to serve as the museum building. The structure was moved to the museum grounds where it was rebuilt and restored. PFM is in fundraising mode to help cover the cost of finishing the building.

Here is how it looked before the cladding was added:

Dodd Field Aerial View

This picture shows an aerial view of Dodd Field taken in the early 20th century. The black building at the north end of the field is the hangar that we have acquired. After Dodd Field was closed, this building was dismantled and moved to Fort Sam Houston. Over the years, it was moved several times, and served a variety of purposes for the Army. PFM will use the hangar as its primary exhibit building, housing the non-flying and historical artifacts owned by the foundation.
