Didn't get to edit this in time, so sorry for the repost.

The airplane looks to be an F4F Wildcat.  Based on that I am going to assume that is one of the airship hangers at Lakehurst NAS.  If that is the case, there is a decent chance I've been inside that building, during the AMA "Aerolympics" international model aircraft competition in July of 1974.  They held the rubber powered free flight competitions in one of the dirigible hangars.

The airframe on that thing probably weighs a couple grams at most.  Probably 10 minutes of flight duration.

My father flew on the AMA show team, and we hosted a competitor from Germany.  I forget if he was an R/C pattern flyer or a speed flyer.
