Long Overdue Scavenger Hunt


What a better name for this scavenger hunt than 'Long Overdue'? Maybe 'Dropped the Ball'? Maybe 'What the heck were you guys waiting for?'. Sorry! Back by popular demand, 8 months since the last one, we are finally hosting another scavenger hunt.

This is a medium-length hunt - 60 points total - and will be held for two weeks.

Good luck!

The (n) numbers in the categories correspond to the notes below:
(1) With airliners.net documentation
(2) With documentation in More Info link
(3) The purpose of this one is not to just show a building in which R&D is done. We're looking for interesting infrastructure, test equipment, prototypes, testbeds, etc. We want to see the equipment actually used in the tests not just the structures that contain them.
(4) Not a static display but one that is under development


This hunt ran from 2008-04-23 through 2008-05-07.
