Perhaps, the crosshatched yellow and Gen switches look like a twotter.

Somewhere in the US of A.

If I had OZRunways US version, I'd find your exact location

Trent got it first, but to be more precise, On the ILS OR LOC/DME RWY 03 KGCN?

Not on the LOC, but it was tuned.

You guys are sharp so did you zoom in on the pic?

Hi jaba, obviously the K means it is in the US of A and the vor freq and com freq are common to KGCN. The give away was the north south road depicted on the screen that passes by the airport. Lancair's comment had me guessing though. If that was the case, the twotter was coming in tail first.

He has to build up holiday credits with the wife occasionally so that he is allowed to go to OshKosh when it comes along. It's a worthwhile approach with proven results.

I could only see 1nm and the aircraft on a northerly heading, I guess I should have said 'close to' and given the ground speed maybe, on a hot approach, didnt consider on departure, Hard to tell where the exact KGCN icon was. Otherwise I used the same info to determine the location.

I've never used this type of GPS before but given there's an arrow pointing North and that's pointing down the screen, wouldn't that make the aircraft heading South?

I'm just a sore loser because I thought it was a KO-- on the identifier and couldn't find any airport in the States where KO-- matched those frequencies. I think I need to get out more

Tucson Boneyard

Whilst showing someone at my work the Tucson Boneyard, we accidentally discovered that they have gone one better than Google Maps and included additional photos taken from an aircraft.

Have a look here and you'll see what I mean!

Anyone recognise these bad boys?

Finally, the Pima Air and Space Museum in great detail with an Aussie made aircraft front and centre!

Fantastic viewing XXX!

Just south of this position is, I believe, the HARS C-131 which is currently being prepared for a long ferry across the pacific. If you go straight down from the Nomad you find it just before the railway line.

Does the C131 have an Aussie history?

According to HARS FB page this airframe does not. The civil version, the CV-440 does have Aussie history having been operated by Ansett, TAA and 34Sqn RAAF.

There's something you don't see every day, vintage helicopters! Most of them crash before they retire. I'm impressed with the quality of the photo from Google Maps. They have probably done this for other key locations however I haven't found any yet.



Here's your C131 Wanderin Dave. That would be a fun ferry flight...

Is that the remnant of a B-36 with it's nose in the shed? Always thought it a pity that one of those wasn't kept to marvel at .......

Edited to advise that they actually have apparently. Four on display apparently and one in 'storage'. Might have to visit the USA someday after all ....
