    So if it wasn't an accident as the Navy has tried to claim, then my question is "WHY?".

      an accident as far as the Navy was concerned, it could have been intentional on the part of the individual architect who did the design work.  If they really want to get upset over it, they should research that guy in detail.

      Got a problem with my posts? Email me, and let's resolve it.

        But many people in the Navy let it proceed, knowing what it was.

        •  Or, maybe it was just Wooding.... (0+ / 0-)

          Could he have pushed it through alone ? Maybe, and I doubt we'll ever know. But, he did retire in '71.

          As I wrote above,

          "If so [if it were Wooding alone], what would others on the base say or do ? Go against a Rear Admiral ? Run around shouting "there's a giant swastika building at the NAB base" ?

          No, they'd probably do as people on the base have done for decades - keep quiet, because the building is a terrible embarrassment."
