    The Pyramids of Egypt:

    Preflighting at Giza Airport, Pyramids in the background.

    The Pyramids of Giza are often called one of the seven wonders of the
    world. In Flight Simulator 98 there are several pyramids visible from the
    airport at Giza (Embaba) (HEEM) but little or no mention is made of them. A
    single situation file allows us to tour the area from the air. We know from
    the desciption in the situation file that these are the "famous" Pyramids of
    Giza. What most people probably don't realize is these aren't the only
    pyramids that are found in FS98, more can be seen further south. We are
    going to examine all the pyramids and explain which pyramids they are, who
    built them, and when. We're also going to look over the famous "Sphinx" that
    faces the rising sun over the Nile. I'm going to take this time to point out that
    the pyramids that were placed in the Flight Simulator 98 scenery were done
    with excellent accuracy. I used actual GPS coordinates to infer which pyramid
    was being represented in the scenery.

Ontake is located around 100 km (62 mi) northeast of Nagoya, and around 200 km (125 mi) west of Tokyo, at the borders of Kiso and ?taki, Nagano Prefecture, and Gero, Gifu Prefecture. The volcano has five crater lakes, with Ni no Ike at 2,905 m (9,531 ft) being the highest mountain lake in Japan. Ontake is a major sacred mountain, and following older shamanistic practices, actors and artists have gone to the mountain to put themselves into trances in order to get divine inspiration for their creative activities.

    Located on the promontory to the west of the harbor is Fort George. Built in 1705 by the French, many of the buildings are now used by the police. One of the rooms has been converted to a gym and another to a sort of sewing room. Much of the fort is still intact and open to visitors. However, the buildings are very dilapidated, from a combination of Hurricane damage and neglect, and there is little or no information within the fort itself. There's a good view from the battlements. There is a $2.00 per person fee to visit the Fort.
