The top floor of Avengers Mansion had long been the hangar and
landing runway for the Avengers' supersonic Quinjet. Employing the principles
of a naval aircraft carrier landing deck, the third floor uses a wire (which catches
the arresting hook of a Quinjet) and a series of pistol-coupled pulleys that gradually
decelerate the craft over a 30-foot distance. The third floor also contained computerized
navigation aids, radar, and communications. The hangar had storage room for four
Quinjets, three on storage dollies, and one in launch position. With the recent
rescinding of launch privileges within city limits, the third floor hangar has
been in disuse. All of the Quinjets have been moved to Hydrobase. Various members
have suggested converting the facilities to other uses, but as yet what to do
with the vacant hangar has not been decided.
