• Where In The World #55

    Ahhhh, it's good to be back! (But this feature won't survive if you all don't send in suggestions for locations; see information at the bottom.)

    Our last Where in the World Feature (#54 by my calculations) took us to Meekatharra in Western Australia. It certainly is not someplace I had ever heard of before but when you need gas, you need to land where there is gas so ...

    The pilots listed below got it correct - congratulations!

    Dominic Smith
    Stephen Sparrow
    Bill Smith
    Graeme Nowland
    Lars Hasager Kirk
    Bob Bina
    John Doughe
        Ian Macdonald
    Peter Stark
    Mike Dow
    Joe Bowers
    Matthias Schaper
    Tom Taylor
    Andy Robertson
        Reid Gearhart
    Kevin Sewell
    Thomas Oftedal
    Geoff Meekan
    Mike Guttman

    And a few wrong guessers were really close at Mt. Magnet, W.A. which is just down the road, south of Meekatharra.

       

    This next feature is a place we have been to before. So how good is your memory?

    Hint, I gave you a list of all locations last time.

    Hint, there is a DC-8 abandoned at the airport.

    Hint, you'll need add-on scenery to get anything remotely close to reality on the sim.

    Good Luck.

    Send your guesses to me at: [email protected].

    If you'd like to submit a future location we need a few things from you:

    1. The actual location - something sim-related would be good
    2. A real-world photo
    3. A sim-photo
    4. A clue or hint (not too hard, not too easy, more than a 23-second Google Search)

    Send your suggested location proposals to: [email protected].

      Yes, Mt Magnet is just "down the road" from Meekatharra. Ron, someone told me that in Europe, 100 miles is considered to be a long distance, while Australians consider 100 years to be a long period of time.
