    T2 Hanger Floor Pit

    Are the ends concreted shut or are there ducts out? Looking initially I thought of a service duct hence question Also following on from post above, what was based there, how old the hanger, as if built at time of hanger it may help. There is a guide to tell how old the hanger http://www.rafmonument.nl/_files/file/raf-hangars.pdf
