Exclusive Photos: Stratolaunch Hangar Under Construction

Photos taken of the first Stratolaunch hangar under construction in Mojave taken on Monday, April 23, 2012. You can see workers on the roof in the photo above. You can also see the first Stratolaunch 747-422 behind the building. Workers are now stripping the former United Airlines passenger jet of engines and other parts for use in a much larger aircraft.

And as an added bonus, I’m throwing in a picture of the Mojave Desert’s ubiquitous wind turbines at sunset.
