Hanger

Hi guys! I couldn't access this forum for the past few days and I didn't know why. Was it being maintained?

A: How does John Travolta manage to have an airplane at his house? I am not questioning the affordability aspect of it; I'm sure he can afford it. And I am sure he can have big enough land for a runway. But there seems so many potential issues.

B: My sister spends Summers at a golf/equestrian neighborhood with a 4600 foot long private landing strip. Weekends, it's lined with King Airs. Too bad my sister's personal Learjet is too fast to safely fly into the mountainous neighborhood. She has to fly 30 miles away where she keeps a car in a hanger.

- According to an online dictionary "hanger" means "1. a curved piece of wire, wood, or plastic on which clothes are hung while they are being stored", "2. a frame of wire, wood, or plastic on which clothes are hung to keep them neat when you are not wearing them". Which meaning does it belong to in this case?

Thanks so much!

Steve, that is a spelling error (or a typo). It is spelt "hangar" and is a large building for storing airplanes, similar to a garage for storing cars.
