Hangar No. 2 was initially a Tee shaped hangar used by New England Airways (NEA) who flew services between Brisbane and Sydney from about the mid 1930's.

The roof members are made of oregon pine, while the vertical supports are steel.

Airlines of Australia took over NEA in 1936 and extended the hangar. Airlines of Australia maintained their Stinson and Monospar aircraft in this hangar. In 1999 the hangar continues to be used for aircraft maintenance.
