Are you talking by area or by volume? Just aircraft or dirigible? The NASA Vehicle Assembly Building is probably by volume. By floor area it would be Boeing. By hangar only for airlines, I don't have a clue.

Got ya. However the largest commercial airline hangar is at BKK. "The hanger has the ability to simultaneously service three Airbus A380s"..."The hangar is 35 metres tall, 90 metres wide and 270 metres long"..... by the way. The new Hangar at FRA built by LH comes close. It can maintain up to three 747.

The largest "selfsupporting hangar" is Brandenburg, near Berlin. It was built for the production of the Cargo Lifter, which never materalized. It's lie 360x200x100 Meters

Correction: I think the hangar at bkk used to be the biggest hanger. Now it seems to be the hangar at PEK built in cooperation between LH, AG and Air China. About 70.000m², up to 6 l/h aircrafts can be maintained simultainiously. It is the biggest hangar on the Asian Continent and therefore probably the biggest civil aviation maintenance hangar in the world.

The NASA building has the distinction of the tallest hanger measured from floor to ceiling. It's also, IIRC, the tallest interior space of any built structure of any kind (not including things like conduits).

NAS Tillamook blimp hanger at TMK/KTMK


One site has it as the "World's Largest Free-Standing Wood Structure," 206 feet wide, 1,072 feet long and 192 feet high.

So I guess this would be the worlds largest wood hanger.

If you consider the Boeing assembly plant a hanger, then that would be your answer. It is the largest building by volume (472,000,000 ft^3) compared to the vehicle assembly building in Florida which is about 160,000,000 ft^3. The building covers 9.8 acres. With the tooling and stuff removed, there is a lot of usable floor space, which is what they did for the 787 premier ceremony and only used 1 of the 6 assembly lines.

Yep.

At the MRO Asia conference in Singapore last fall, Ameco's promotional materials was making the claim of the biggest hanger in Asia.
Ameco is the MRO facility at PEK. A joint venture between Air China and Lufthansa Technik. A very impressive facility to visit.

You are all wrong, the biggest hangar in the world was Dan Air's hanger at LGW, if you had to do an engine change it was outside in God's Hanger Big grin

I recall reading in a magazine some years ago the someone proposed a massive airship that would be constructed in a covered section of the Grand Canyon. Naturally, I'll believe that when I see it.

NAS Tillamook blimp hanger at TMK/KTMK

Sadly, IIRC, it burned to the ground about 8 years ago...someone was using it to store hay  Sad One of the blimp hangars at TMK is still standing, and the Tillamook Air Museum is housed in it.

I thought that the boeing factory (is a factory line considered a hangar?) was the largest building by volume in the world. I heard this several years ago so it may not still be accurate.

I always thought it was one of the hangars at NAS Moffett, in California, but I could be wrong.


From Wikipedia......

" Hangar One is one of the world's largest freestanding structures, covering 8 acres (32,000 m2)."

As far as airline hangars go i would say AFW (Alliance Fort Worth) AA has a 6 Bay side by side hangar for heavy C checks. I believe it can hold 6 777's side by side. They do there heavy overhauls on 767's/777's there. The one in BKK i havent seen much of so i might be wrong..sorry

MCI and STL have some BIG hangars, but ORD's are bigger then the ones in MCI and STL. AA hangars in DFW are also very big....all 5 of them now.

As far as the world. I think its Boeings.

AA's STL hangar doesn't seem that big. I've personally never seen anything bigger than an MD-80 in there. I believe that most of TW's work was always done in Kansas City.
If you are referring to Boeing's production facility on the north side then yes, that is pretty big. The F-15, F-18, and T-45 lines are all in the same building with a separate building for finishing. The original McDonnell hangar where all of those famous rollout pictures were taken is now used by GoJet I think.
