  • Does Anyone Know Where This Is?

    I came across this picture and I can't figure out where it is located or if it is even real. Does anyone have any idea? Thanks!

      From IExplore (horrible name for a website):

      Jinan

      The capital of Shandong Province, Jinan is known as the ‘City of Springs’; these provide the main tourist attraction. The city also has Buddhist relics, parks and lakes. Of particular interest is the Square Four Gate Pagoda, the oldest stone pagoda in China. Outside the city, Mount Taishan’s 72 peaks make up a mountain park with ancient pine and cypress trees, spectacular waterfalls, 1800 stone sculptures and a kilometer-long mountain stairway known as the ‘Ladder to Heaven’.


      So evidently it's outside of Jinan, China. It's even in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list:

      World Wind link: worldwind://goto/world=Earth&lat=36.26656&lon=117.10069&a lt=30376&dir=-9.5
      It's included in the UNESCO WHS Add-on for World Wind: http://whcww.endofinternet.org/
      The download link is the wchwwc thing at the top. Mount Taishan is in the northeast of China.

      Note: The above statement is probably an educated guess, derived from much forum reading, IRC chatting, general curiosity, etc. Use at your own risk.
      Before asking, check the FAQ or search, and Ask a good question.

        China -unique geographic structure

        -not so long ago an attempt was made by their AF, during a scheduled major military airshow held nearby, to perform an aerobatic manouver thru this 'pass'. Many mil a/c websites had relevant a/c practice pics, tho I don't believe it was actually publically flown. -not for lack of pilot skill nor a/c ability.... I'm thinking it was aborted due to flying safety conditions encountered at the time.
        Have multi-pics of this practice, but as none I advised expressed an interest at the time, I buried these and the relevant detail info deep into my archives. Recall it involved a recent advanced MiG or Sukoi type.
