I don't have the link for the photographic scenery website, look on your box; i'm sure the website will be able to answer that :DI don't know whether a disk containing the whole of Gary's work will be released, i think you'd have to email him and ask.... personally i wouldn't be suprised if that does happen.I have a question for you, if you don't mind lol.Seeing as all the other pilots i know on msn are offline, maybe you can answer this for me.I've just been doing flight revision for my PPL, and i'd like to double check that whether i've got the basic understanding correct.I've been working on converting arcs of degrees longitude to time.Is the arc always measured from the prime meridian? .. if so then it's the time taken to get from that meridian to a choosen point e.g 135 deg W.

WillI am a little puzzled by your question as longitude is used to measure time from the prime meridian in the sense of time.So going west each degree is 1/15 of an hour later while going east each degree is 1/15 th of an hour earlier.Lat and long are used to mark a point on the globe and timing between two points can only be beween those two points not the prime meridian ???Peter

AH! Thanks, you've just made it a whole lot clearer, i was getting abit confused earlier where the time in relation to the arc should be measured from, for some reason while looking at my book i kept on thinking the prime meridian. I didn't think about the timing between two points at any location on the planet - opps, that explains it lol.Cheers for that, much appeciated.Will
