New google images

Just checked Google Earth and found new imagery of Lincolnshire. Work in my garden suggests less than a year old and lack of work in a neighbours suggests about March 06. Coningsby is clear with the old ATC in the process of demolition but no aircraft on the disperal. The Wash ranges now stand out clearly with the tide out.

Work around my area, would indicate that the photos are about 2 years old.

Conningsby isn't on Google Maps But Cranditz is

- who parked all those cars on the No 1 Mess parade ground. They'd have had a hissy fit in my day!

Mind you, I did drive across the front of CHOM parade ground one night, four up, after we had been sent to polish Whittle Hall

- and what are all those cars doing parked within 25m of a building? Don't they know there's a war on?

Coningsby is as clear as a bell on my Google, as is Waddo, Scampton and Cranners, so not sure whats up with your kit?

I think it must have been mid 2005, and probably during the Lincs show (check out the show ground)

Either way, some great images

Crikey, the image of my house must be less than a week old. We only moved in last November and the image shows my car on the drive but with my neighbours Parasol out in the garden which I don't recall seeing until last weekend, because I had remarked about what a gopping colour it was (Orange).

The picture of my house on the north side of Lincoln shows the kids trampoline in our back garden, and we got rid of that in September 05. Best guess for the photos is summer 05.

The work on the power lines that cross the A15 is going on. That dates those images from summer 05

I would go for the first week in Jul 05. The grass at RAF Waddington shows the airshow had taken place (2/3 Jul 05) and only one marquee left - they had gone by the end of the week (8 Jul 05).

Leaning Tower of Portsmouth

Further to TSMs last set of LL, the join in the photo tiles makes it look like this tower is seriously out of kilter and either the CVS or the ship to the S of her has a serious list!

Or have I just not been drinking enough?

Pie Man,

The Lincolnshire Show is full flow, which normally happens on the Wed-Fri before the Waddo Air Show, which IIRC was 2/3 Jul in 2005, therefore photos taken 29 Jun -1 Jul 05 (assuming that all the photo that make up the composite were taken on the same day!)

Daf,

You are quite right, failed to look at the Lincs Showground. As the display markers went out at about 1100 on the Thu before the airshow and they are not visible, with your info on the Lincs Show it narrows down times to before 1100 on the 30th June or the 29th June.

When was the old tower demolished at Coningsby?, as the Coningsby photo show it being demolished.
