Florida Today reports the historic Hangar S at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station has been scheduled for demolition.

“Unfortunately, there are some buildings that aren’t sustainable anymore, some that we can’t really afford to maintain,” said Tom Engler, deputy manager of the Center Planning and Development Office at KSC.

“This is a 60-plus-year-old building. It has a lot of maintenance issues, and it’s actually beneficial to the center to put them on the abandon list and then eventually demolish them because they are too expensive for us to maintain.”

The annual operating cost at Hangar S: $148,000.
