What is that structure at right on background?

that picture is taken at a testing airfield I believe. That structure, I would guess, is a hanger. Although, there does seem to be a lot of what looks like scaffolding there, so I'm not altogether sure.

Yes, that is what I also thought it was. However it seems is a big panel suporting by wires, the photo I found online its a little short at right.

Me thinks it is either part of a hanger (under repair) or a more robust kind of camoflage, like in this picture below.

Kind of like a big duck blind.

It is hangar, likely for zeppelin type aircraft and is definately not a camo screen. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
