Google Earth Plug-in: Former Airship Shed in Montebourg-Ecausseville

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files

In France few big hangars had been built, because with the “Spies” there was only one attempt to built a rigid airship. Nevertheless at the end of the First World War an airship station for rigid airships was built in Cuers-Pierrefeu by adding the parts of smaller hangars to two big ones.

At the airport at Paris-Orly two concrete hangars (demolished in 1942) were built between 1923 and 1926. Planned by the famous engineer Eugene Freyssinet the 300 m long buildings were an important innovation according construction and aesthetic of the design. None of the big French hangars exists anymore, while a few smaller ones still are there.

The two prestressed reinforced concrete parabolic shells at Orly were the most distinguished examples of reinforced concrete construction; less well known are the reinforced concrete parabolic vault at present used by the French navy at Montebourg, near Cherbourgh.
