Contractor case study for the older B-2 hangars at Fairford. These were built between 2003-05 and located here: 51į41'20.70"N, 1į46'20.97"W
https://www.doddgroup.com/case-studies/raf-fairford

"The project had to accommodate precise temperature control of the hangar for maintenance of the aircraft due to the different states in which it could land, either requiring cooling or heating, in order to ensure the outer shell of the aircraft was brought back to its normal temperature within a specific time period."

An article from last year on the new developments at the base: https://www.airandspaceforces.com/raf-fairford-builds-up-to-support-bomber-task-forces-and-more/

Lt. Col. Jeremy Stover: "hangars on the base right now are very old, and you canít do some things in those hangars. So this new four-bay hangar, youíll be able to do engine runs in the hangar. Youíll be able to work on modern aircraft that have special materials and handling requirements and HVAC types of requirements that we donít have in our current facilities."

Hummm... are there any other aircraft apart from the B-2 that has special materials and HVAC requirements?
