Paragraph about airships, airplanes, etc[edit]

I tagged the paragraph under operations that talks about airplanes, airships, etc as to its relevance to the article. The article is about the building, Hangar No. 1 as a part of Lakehurst NAS, while the particular paragraph applies to airship operations and all other hangars. I have no problems with the content of the paragraph, and am particularly happy that is has a reference, but the operations of airships is covered in much greater detail in other articles. Perhaps this info should be moved to one of these other pages and appropriate links be added from this hangar page. DCwom (talk) 13:19, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

I moved the section to the notes. Until 1940-41, Hangar n°1 was the only hangar in Lakehurst and one of very few in the US to carry this task during the pre-pearl harbor period (the so-called period of "national defense"). The problem of moving it to other pages is that IMHO the article should be self explanatory. One sentence explaining the role of airships during WWII won't hurt, as their role is not obvious for the general public. Hope this helps. --Alberto Fernandez Fernandez (talk) 16:08, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
