Looking for stonehenge

Recommended Posts

To cheer myself up after a very bad day for Aerospace I decided to get some air and try to find Stonehenge armed with a 1:500 000 chart and a trusty UK travel guide. I headed off from Bembridge tracked over Southhampton and Salisbury. The travel guide showed it to be in a triangle near a motorway and indeed it was - just off the left wing tip in the last picture. Just to show with FU3 we can do real aerial tourism whilst practising our navigation skills.Well it took my mind off the bad news for a little while.Cheers,QvdG

Stonehenge is actually situated adjacent to the A360, and the car park can be seen across the road. The road that is just to the left of Stonehenge in the picture is the A303, which is NOT a motorway :-)Chris Low,ENGLAND.

Many accidents occur at the A360 and A303Here is a chance for you to find some out POI's (I am really looking forward to getting my UK scenery, I am not chasing you christian!! just looking forward to it!) and also to post some snapshots on the forumGo look for the goodwood classic race cicuit nr chichester (should be around n5051.55w00045.55 if christian has it right!. Take a picture!This should have a grass strip in the center (32R) amongst othersOr can you find lands end? (airport at n5006.16 W00540.23). Need to put the famous "First and Last" Pub there and have ATC route planes to the Isle of scilly!How about Portland bill?
