The small ground to the left looks like a Cricket ground wiht the pitch in the middle. The bigger one no idea, Golf Course? Maybe not, I think there seems to be some sort of a runway there.

Bingo - the very same ground where the troops were helilifted into - the view is an almost exact 'representation' of the original black and white photo published in India Today - I will post that image later for comparision.

after watching Bhawk down carefully it seems the scattered presence of delta force members among the cut off rangers was instrumental in holding up the morale and providing 'mature leadership' - saving the hapless rangers from a really bad mauling.
would a mixed bag of para cdo & S-LI have made any difference ? did the units face similar numebers and weaponry of LTTE from similar level of cover?

Here is the original photo from the india today article (bad quality)

and the site today (repeat)

The original picture incorrectly identified the smaller ground as the area where the sikhLI troops were landed. as we know now, they landed in the main ground along with the paracommandos.

I have it at home. Will post it by evening.

A faster way However - just turn the Google User community layer to "On" and you will see a placemark that says "Is this the Jaffna University area?" pop up. its exactly the same place.

Srinagar should not be too difficult to miss. Just go to Srinagar and look for the runway south of the city.

I think the Aircrafts have secret location, that they are flown to, when there is a treat.

Also there is a warning time (do remember that paki cruise missiles (if they have such acurate ones) will take some time to reach the target. using balistic missiles, is very risky (as it may spark a nuclear confrontation). Besides, the balistic missiels are very expenisve and not accurate. can only take out 1 or 2 planes if lucky.

But of course, If they posess 100 effective cruise missiles (which are launched simontaniously) they could do imense damage.

Can this be spotted on Google Earth?

from Pioneer, 10/24/2006

Impact crater dating back to Vedic period

New Delhi

Indian geologists claim to have discovered a possible impact crater in Kutch district of Gujarat dating back to the Vedic period. The crater is suspected to have been formed by the impact of an extra-terrestrial object, is seen as a circular feature near Luna village in the northwestern Banni Plains of the Great Rann in Kutch district.

The site is located about a kilometre away from a human settlement belonging to the Harappan period and may have found reference in ancient Sanskrit texts, which mention the "impact of a burning extraterrestrial object" in western India some 4,000-5,000 years ago.

Is it 23°44'15.43"N / 69°13'50.33"E ?? not clear though.. but are round in nature.. but it definitely does not look like for any theorist to say "some asteroid striked the rig vedic down" .. unless they can prove it to be part of a bigger asteroid hit in the himalayans, and this is just one of the debris.., that changing the flow of sarasvati river (the researches must focus in the himalyans .. not possible since OBL gang and paki guys have captured the exact places).


But this in Bangalore looks to me more a natural formation.. but totally destroyed by human habitat.. wonder what it is (any bangaloreans?).

The meteor strike may not necessarily look like a nice round cup in the sand.

An example is the Charlevoix crater: http://www.unb.ca/passc/ImpactDatabase/ ... levoix.htm

I would like to take this chance and point out to everyone here that all the pictures on Google Earth are atleast 12-24 months outdated !

After carefull examination of Hyderabad,Secunderabad,Gwalior and with help of my friends in Florida who examined thier local Surrounding areas.

We have concluded that the Imagary data is atleas 12-24 months old.
For Eg- The place where i live in Gwalior is only in its "Laying of foundation stage " in Google Earth , which was done more then 2 years ago.

However in the beigning i thought that data is updated on specific region when avilable. And since not every inch of earth's Image is readily avilable or made avilable it may not be possible to keep it upto date.

But as i examined my own parents house i realised that the boundry wall and the main gate is not visible in the Google earth. From this is concluded that the most of the data is outof date.

Further my Friends in Florida studied their own house and provided that even over there they were not able to see the phgysicle changes they had made to their house 6 months ago.

So thus i see Google Earth as just a tool that gives a average "Joe" a chance to feel like "CIA or KGB Spy" haha

but he does not know or does not have the time to look closer even in his own backyard to see what hes looking at is simply a toy and not a threat to National Security !

You forgot to restart the laptop/desktop while holding it titled at 45 deg to the horizontal. Just like you do to Bajaj Chetak's. That should make imagery real-time like!

Admin was having fun onlee! You missed the smiley. Guess it should have been :P.

please to be checking the digital coverage tabs for exact dates of images onlee.

GE buys ~ 18km x 18km image blocks and typically updates parts of a globe at regular intervals. However the update rates are not uniform for all cities.
Some places images are older and in some you can keep an eye on your parked car. :)

last GE updates in early Oct has 6 mos old images for some cities.
