Rickenbacker work continues with additional scope including Hanger 885 work summary. PSI is on track to finish the hanger renovation project at the Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base two months ahead of schedule!
Hangar 885 was originally constructed to be a maintenance hangar for the B29 bombers, and was adapted to accommodate the C-130 transport aircrafts in the 1980s.  Most recently it has served as the maintenance hangar for the 121st Air Refueling Wing for the KC-135 Stratotankers.  The renovation PSI is performing changes this 75-year-old hangar into a state of the art Medical and Dental facility which will include a flight logistics and flight simulator for the Air National Guard’s service members getting ready to deploy.  This facility will serve the entire region as the starting point to get battle ready for the missions they perform.  This 70,000 square foot renovation includes all new power, lighting, HVAC systems, plumbing, fire alarm, sprinklers and low voltage network cables.  The facility will look similar on the outside to the old original hangar, but inside it will have new modern features.
