Aircraft engine test facility ‘Hush House’ get demolished for recycling

The 119th Maintenance Squadron engine test facility, better known as the ‘hush house,’ is partially demolished as a civilian contracted crew works on tearing it down for recycling at the North Dakota Air National Guard Base, Fargo, N.D., May 17, 2016. While the planning for removal of the piece of Government equipment took more than a year, the demolition and removal process should take about six days. The contractor estimates that only 20% of the material will reach the landfill, or 5% of the weight, the rest will be recycled. (U.S. Air National Guard Photo by Senior Master Sgt.
