try this site and download the ultimate map. check out the airfields fellow lazairheads fly from. the program is really for broadband but i find it is ok with a good dialup. just takes a bit to focus in.

my strip is located 33deg 22'03.32"S 151deg 17'58.24"E
for some reason clarity is down a bit in some places. ozzie

pretty tight little strip. this would be handy if someone was going to visit. they would know just what to expect when arriving. i wonder if anyone was out flying when the photo was taken of their strip. ozzie

Very interesting -- I downloaded the program and it actually has some very accurate photographs. However it appears to be a composite and not all are equal; the Wyoming area where I live is a sparsely populated area and the photos are not that accurate.

But still a very impressive program that could be used as a good trip planner if you don't have any sectionals or WAC charts.

I haven't gone through the complete program yet there appears to be a premium service so maybe that fills in the holes once you start paying for a subscription.

I would like to see where Shorty flies out of -- and are there any Lazair is in South America?

Hey Ozzie

Every time I entering your longitude latitude the cross hairs get taken the offshore in the Sydney area do you live on an island.

I'll try again later but it seemed to me it was taking a long time to download the fine resolution pictures.

Hey, Ozzie, I noticed you posted a photo of your recently completed Lazair on the map site. If you have any other photos I , and I'm sure all, would enjoy seeing what you have.
