Dirk Pitt has a unique home which he rarely lives in because of his Job as the head of NUMA. He lives in a remodeled and refurbished hangar on the grounds of Washington National Airport, near Washington, D.C.. A cast-iron stairway leads into a cluttered apartment with maps of the sea and models of ships scattered all about. The hangar houses his classic car/antique car collection, as well as a Messerschmitt Me 262 aircraft, a Ford trimotor aircraft, a Pullman railroad dining car, and a totem pole. The hangar also contains items collected from prior adventures, such as a cast-iron bathtub with an outboard motor fixed to one end, and is protected by a state-of-the-art security system. Pitt occasionally adds classic cars to his collection purloined from a variety of antagonists over the course of his adventures. In his earliest adventures he lived there by himself but since his encounter with his children, Dirk Pitt, Jr and Summer Pitt they moved in with him. At the end of Trojan Odyssey he had is wedding Reception in his hangar where he met Clive Cussler for another time over the course of the series.
