One of the most recognized corporate symbols in the United States is that of the Target corporation, who have 1,351 stores in 47 of the 50 states.
Of those 1,351 stores we’ve found three which have a giant Target painted on the roof, all of which are unsurprisingly located near major international airports (not air force bases, because that would be silly ;-)).
The Target store is used as a reporting point for the Archerfiled aerodrome, which is to the West. The Target represents the entry point for aircraft entering the Archerfiled control zone from the East, and has nothing to do with the Brisbane Airport, which is to the North.
Although very similar looking the Target chain of Australia is actually a completely separate company to the U.S. version.
Thanks to the target spotting talent of Dan Hartung, Steve, El Warren, Mark, KÃ¡ri Tulinius, Dann, Jason, Derek DYsart, dan_the_stud, Dave D, Ryan Toyota, Brian, Keith T, Erik Nygren, Infinity, Lee Bennett, Louis Koziarz, Eric Doherty, Carol & rascalking.
