    Here's another cool one. This is the museum where I volunteer. The bird in front of the 2 hangars is the C-46 Command. You can also see a B-25 in the upper left and 2 SNJs just to the right of the B-25, with a Broussard in between them. In the second row on the right you can spot a Long-EZ.

    You have to download the program from google. It will probably be pretty slow with dialup as the maps have to load from the internet. But you can get it from http://earth.google.com

    Go there and select Google Earth (it is around a 10MB file if I remember). Shouldn't matter if you have dial-up it will just take longer.

    I blacked out the Latitude/Longitude to prevent cheating.

    It is only bad that they does not show my town in detail. I would have loved to see my town from above.

    I thought more people would be able to indentify this. This is a easy quiz!

    You are correct, this located at Van Nuys Airport. But can you indentify what aircraft and aircraft group we are looking at in this picture?

    :lol:
