Fascinating! Seems that the Cape Cod canal was dredged out a bit looking at Google Maps - looks like it's silted over just inland of the two jetties in your screenshot. Also the dirt track which looks a little like a perimeter track (same screenie). Is that for powerlines for the phased array radar near the ANG base?

Very nice to see this classic plane over the East Coast. Beautiful coastal view in the last picture.

The PAVE PAWS installation is smallish, light clearing roughly located at the 10 o'clock position off the aircraft, fully surrounded by woods. It's about a wingspan away from the tip of the starboard wing. There is a small access road leading to the radar on its right side.

While the radar does get its feed from one or two of the larger transmission lines in the area, the actual feed is too small to be seen in the screenshot. There are multiple high voltage transmission line clearings visible in the screenshot servicing the south coast, central Cape, and connecting the canal power station (located just ahead of the aircraft on the other side of the canal) with the grid.

I spent some time working on this area in OpenStreetMap, adding in the transmission lines and some gas pipelines in the region, hence the familiarity!

Thanks very much for your experienced observation....the photoscenery captures everything that is there including the color!
