The Link Trainer Building (also known as the Fort Lauderdale USNAS Building #8 and currently the Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale Museum) is an historic site in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The building was located at 4050 Southwest 14th Avenue. On May 20, 1998, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. At the end of 1999, the 300 ton building was cut from the old foundation and jacked up hydraulically to be moved to its permanent location at 4000 W. Perimeter Road in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The building originally housed 8 Link Trainers during World War II. The museum now has one Link Trainer on display.[1]
