Google Earth

Postby Niner Alpha » Mon Feb 21, 2011 10:46 am

Jerry sends us Google images marked with locations he has visited or is in the process of visiting. These locations have been researched as best he and those he has been in contact with can make them. This first set is the most certain of being very close to correct.

There are additional Google Earth photos attached in the string Cai Nua - 1/12/69. I put them there because of the importance of the subject and how the Google images add to it. viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2925 The Google Earth Cai Nua images are in the Cai Nua file in the Album section. These attached here are put at the front of the larger trip album. http://www.6thofthe31st.com/gallery/mai ... emId=19416

(If you note the bottom of all the screen shots shows the Google Earth GPS information. All you have to do is copy the information in the seach slot a Google Earth. For instance try 10 38'36.25N 106 29'31.25E for Ben Luc. You don't need the degree mark. )


More Google Earth shots...I will send these in at least two emails.

The second email contains the locations still in question because of less than complete coordinates...for example: XS5026. Lacking the two required "digits", the location could have the long and lat off by as much what...900 meters? Maybe we can get some inputs from the guys as to their accuracy.

The attachments on this email had complete coordinates and Jack converted to Google Earth long/lat; therrefore, they should be correct. Understanding that the "marker" would fall "somewhere" within the location. Gettysberg for example shows well off the Bo Bo canal, and both of us remember swimming in the Bo Bo.

I am sending these two emails only to you...I will notify my Delta men and a few more..that they can visit your site if they want to see them. Maybe we can encourage a few visits that way.

I am also going to copy a few guys from other companies and see if they will let their men know about my trip and the message boards and album. Who knows? A few might check it out?

Jerry

Does anyone want to cast their vote as to "Will the real FSB Jackson please stand up"?
