WENDOVER, Utah (AP) -- Work to stabilize the 50,000- square-foot main hangar at the Wendover Airfield in western Utah is complete.
The hangar once housed B-29 Superfortresses the Enola Gay and Bockscar before they dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan in 1945 during World War II.
Wendover Airport Director Jim Petersen says the stabilization is only part of what he sees becoming a $5 million renovation to fully restore the hangar.
He says the next step is to raise about $250,000 to replace the corrugated metal skin covering the building's east and west ends and roof.
