Air Base Weirdness, Iraq

Thursday, 30th June 2005 by

There’s something very odd going on at this air base in Eastern Iraq. Quite apart from the aircraft parked on the runways, there’s some serious image misalignment, and what on earth is going on with the colours? Thanks to Marc Armstrong

Street View Competitors, Part 1

Google Street View may be ever-expanding in its reach, but it’s still a long way from covering the entire world.
