X-Files – Long Beach – California

Another “haunted” location, like Newhall Mansion, for the stars of the X-files, was “The Queen Mary“. This ship was used when Mulder and Scully went to the Bermuda trangle.

These days, the ship is a hotel in Long Beach, the crew stayed in this hotel while shooting the episode. Some of the crew members experienced creepy experiences while staying overnight on the ship….

X-Files – Tustin California – Blimb Base

Image

In 1942, a huge blimb base (1,000 foot long and 300 foot wide) was build in California. It was not just a home for blimbs, but the Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) used it for helicopters as well.

In 1974, a film crew used the hangers to film scenes for “The Hindenburg”, a movie about the tragedy with the Zeppelin with that name. It is the first film recording, but by far the last.

In 1999, the military stoped using the two hangers, one of them might be torn down. One of the hangers was used for climatic scenes in “The X-Files”. The Syndicate was exterminated here by Aliens.

The hanger can also be seen in “JAG”, and although unconfirmed, “Mythbusters”. (if anyone can confirm this, please be kind enough to drop me a line)
