Tall Building On LAX, What Is It?

Tue Jul 10, 2012 11:01 pm

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

Quoting n901wa (Reply 1):
Hi. Its the Old Western / Delta Stores building

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

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.
