Significance: Facility No. 130 was built in 1934 as an additional hangar for the Army Air base on Ford Island, known as Luke Field. It was a standard Army hangar design dating from the late 1920s. The hangar has a significant association with both Army and Navy aviation on Ford Island. Facility No. 130 was left in place, with a few other hangars, when the Army relocated its air base to Hickham Field in the late 1930s. It is significant as one of the few non-residential structures, built by the Army, that remain on Ford Island. When the Navy took over the entire island, it used this hangar to maintain the aircraft carrier planes. This was an important function that contributed to the success of many Pacific theater battles.
