Whilst flying Google I found this work site and unless I am very much mistaken it's a new airfield.
What are the coordinates PA?
it sure looks like the eastern Adelaide Hills.
Looks work in preparation for relocation of CFS fixed wing aircraft from Woodside to Brukunga.
essnden. You can see the freeway and the shops on the south side.
I will find some "out of the way" locations next time.
This airstrip has Mogas 91 and 95
No guesses re parallel grass strips in post #690? (Image from Google Earth).
The hills remind me of Alice Springs, but nothing in the foreground does.
Probably a bit hard for those from north of the Murray.
Red, Benalla looking south over the road into town. No?
Spot on Nobody. Looking down 17L and 17R. Township to the right.
What is the dark line in the vegetation from lower left to upper centre of the photo?
As I stated in post #692, the image is from Google Earth. These images are a mosaic of many frames, not necessarily taken together. The adjoining frames may have been taken on different days, with different lighting.
Google Earth recently upgraded from two angles of slant to constantly variable. These images are rendered a little like the scenery in Flight Simulator software. Take a look at a location near you in Google Earth. Click on 3D in the lower right. Place the cursor in the lower centre of the image, hold down the Ctrl key and move the mouse around to see the various angles of view. To rotate the north/south alignment, click on the arrows in the compass icon. Place the cursor in the top centre of the image when slanted, hold down the right mouse button and drag down. Effect is similar to simulator flying. You will see the image rendering panel by panel as the data is downloaded.
3D views in the US are even more impressive. Take a look at the image in my thread Stored Hueys. The images scanning around that airport were so accurate you could see which light aircraft had sunshades over the windscreen. Ain't technology great?
I won't ask you to guess this airport, it's Oshkosh. These images show how the world is presented in Google Earth 3D in the States.
A new one to identify. Cheers Mike
