Google Earth: IED near Baghdad

#2
M_A, cant get google earth to fly to a lat and long. Might just be a duffer, but is there an easier way, like sharing it as a kmz file?

Copy and paste 33.3266643224 44.2847018875 into 'edit/find in places/fly to'. Its an area in the West of Baghdad on the northen road on a dual carriage way.

Info suggests its a destroyed Hummer.

How did you find that? And any other little gems to share with us?

Well I thought this was quite good, in a Naffi bar kind of way: 53°32'19.86"N 1°20'50.49"W :lol:

On the other Q's: the images on GE have been taken since, iirc, 2002, and are periodically updated - North Germany has just been improved dramatically and you can see a lot of stuff of interest for those of us who did/ are doing BAOR. The best way to pick up interesting stuff, apart from looking for it yourself, is through the various GE newsgroups.

If I find anything else I'll wack it in here.

Am I sad and spotterish? But that's the Lancaster from the 'RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight'.

Can't tell what it is. No other vehicles around it though. No 'rest of the convoy'

As for the date, LSA Anaconda (where my tank is) is photographed as in late May 2004.

NTM

Lucky for who???
no disrespect intended for the victims, i meant for the satellite to capture an image at the right moment, this could prove useful in tracking terrorist in Iraq and preventing further IEDs , perhaps a it needs tuning up and to put a satellite over Iraq and Iran 24/7 would take a lots of juice

lads you dont need google earth, go onto gogle website, click on more near right of screen then click on maps top right
the nyou can input anything you want on the search bar (postcodes, places, lats and longs) and itll come up. You can increase or decrease zoom on left and if you click satellite on right there are real time images. hope this helps. www

Those aren't real time images. As far as I can see its exactly the same images as google earth.
