Hatfield was the home of de Havilland from 1930, with pioneering flights originating here: Tiger Moth, Comet racer, Rapide, Mosquito, BAe 146, etc. This hangar was built in 1952 for the Comet airliner project and was the largest aluminium building in the world (measuring 200 by 330' with doors 45' high) with integral offices & fire station. Sadly the airfield was closed in 1993 and is now a housing-estate with just the hangar building remaining, protected as a listed building. Used as a sports centre/gym.
