UA used to operate a substantial maintenance facility at OAK, but they closed it after 9/11. The building still stands and is clearly visible on the west side of Hegenberger as traffic approaches the terminals.

American owns this hangar. They lease out the north half to United. The last I heard, AA was trying to sell it. AA has an identacle hangar down at LAX.

This hangar was built with a government grant to the City of Oakland and leased to World Airways, opening in 1973.
The building in front was WO's headquarters from 1973 until they left in the late '80s, IIRC. It's large enough for four 747s or six DC-10s - World did much contract mx in those days on government and airline aircraft. When I flew for them 1981 to 1986, that's where flight ops was based. Sad to see it empty and forgotten now. Russ Farris
