Helipad Photo Quiz - Which helipad is this?

Postby BrettC » Tue Apr 27 2010, 10:32

OK, so I'm bored and really should be in bed. But I ended up on http://www.nearmap.com and thought I might check out who knows what around here.

Basically I go onto nearmap.com and get a screenshot of a helipad, you can do this to, but try and get a heli on the pad as well. Can do the same with Google Earth as well!

So it goes like this..... and I've got a few

Where is this?

Get the right answer and I, or someone else, can put up another one. A hint though, crop the image so you don't ad any essential details like lat & long and location. :wink:

Enjoy!

I think the WA EMS 412 is all yellow so I guess a hospital in WA, perhaps Perth? :?

OK - so i'm sitting here with nothing to do either.

My guess is the Royal Perth Hospital in the center of Perth on the corner of Wellington and Lord Streets :D

No we land opposite the main straight. No heli's on the track.
I just had a look at Randwick, but not there.
Remember (copper talking here) it has to be visible on nearmap for someone to post it, so you could go looking first and then see the actual view, complete with heli's.

Nearmap? Is that like Google Earth? I’ve been using that to keep an eye on my place while I’m away, not a lot happening there but!?!? :? :D

Yup, shot was taken at the RedBull Air Race but it was actually 2008. I'll give you that though!

Yeah NearMap is done by an Australian company, much better resolution than Google Earth and it gets updated about once a month!

OK, next picture!

Hmm, going to have to stop putting local ones up.

Will have a look through the maps, looks like I'll be away for a couple of days so someone else might have to put a few up!
