A building or structure used for storing aircraft. Often populated by pilots, mechanics, hangar hounds, and similar ilk. It's kind of like a really big garage, but it's more fun to spend time in.

Hangars can be open on one or all sides, fully enclosed, heated or unheated. Some are quite nice with offices inside, some are very plain without even power going to them. The word "Hangar" comes from a French word meaning "shed."
