The thread title says it all. What is the roughly six story tall building on the United mx ramp northeast of taxiway C-4?

Is it for drying parachutes? Storing spare parts? Engine test cell? A silo for ABM missiles? IMAX theater?

Thanks in advance!

Hi. Its the Old Western / Delta Stores building. It sits on the Delta MTC ramp, and is now Delta Cabin Service / Build MTC on the Lower 3 floors, and LAWA uses the upper floors. HTH

Is the "penthouse" on top of the former Western HQ building (overlooking the LAX sign) the former Western executive office?



This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

Hi DL_Mech, The Old Western Penthouse is still there. The Airport Police is in the building, but I can see it from the parking lot behind the DC-10 Hangar   The last time I was in there, was when I had the Junkyard Wars Final Party up there. Its a great place. If we ever get the building back, I want that Office   Ha Ha.
