Google to manage Moffett Field

A Google subsidiary, Planetary Ventures LLC, will take over management of the 1,000-acre Moffett Federal Airfield, a former U.S. Navy based located four miles from Google’s Mountain View, Calif., headquarters. The airfield, which was built in the 1930s, has been managed by NASA’s Ames Research Center for the past 23 years. According to a story in the Seattle Times, Google must renovate the airfield’s three hangars, including one that is a Silicon Valley landmark because of its massive size and location off a major highway. Google also has agreed to upgrade a golf course located next to the airfield.
