Fort Knox

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

I thought I’d post another satellite picture after last weeks picture of the boneyard. Being a fan of the old Bond film Goldfinger I thought Fort Knox and the United States Bullion Depository (the large building with nothing around it at the bottom of the map). View Larger Map

Aircraft Boneyard

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

I noticed that several newspapers had shots taken from Google Earth of the eleven square kilometer US Airforce 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group Aircraft Boneyard today so I thought I’d dig it up on Google maps to have a look myself. View Larger Map
