Sorry but that is Carnival Liberty: https://maps.google.com/?ll=25.77691,-80.169472&spn=0.000618,0.000733&t=h&z=21
I researched the ship's features before posting. Thanks for the heads up anyways... sometimes these are hard to ID. Cheers!

Bing Maps has an updated closer view of this reservoir. Looking at it closed on the northern edge you will see a vehicle which gives the viewer a good sense of scale and how large this man made over sized pool is.

Thanks for the correction Parabellum, had the wrong coliseum. The currently shown ones is the right one.

Ozzy pictureSand dunes encroaching the roads
This is on the road between Pensacola Beach and Fort Pickens. The road was washed heavily by Hurricane Ivan in 2004 and has not reopened since. The local talk is that it will not be opened to the public, and thus it is not being repaired or maintained. Hurricane Katrina was far west of this area and did no damage, all you see is from Hurricane Ivan with it's eye just west of Pensacola.

I've been observing, not posting. Had to get back in the groove. BTW, Pensacola is now in BEV. Check it out.

The reason for the shift: "The zero meridian used by satellite navigation systems (on the WGS84 datum) is 102.5 metres (336.3 feet) to the east of the line marked at Greenwich"

Ozzy picture21° Self propelled Artillery Regiment M-109 155mm SP Howitzers
The M109 brings back a lot of memories. I was assigned to the 3rd Battalion 18th Field Artillery Regiment in Fort Sill back in 1985, and it is so awesome to see them fire. You can stand behind them, which is the only safe place, and see the round leave the turret. They are also good for keeping you up at night when on field exercises.

Right, it's not often that Yahoo has better maps, but in this case and a few I have recently submitted they do. Since I cannot submitt a YM link, I include it as a comment. Thanks.

Here is also a good article with pictures of the area from way back then when there it used to be a rail station accross the street: http://www.cbu.edu/~mcondren/MRP/MemphisUnionStation/Poplar_Avenue_Station.htm
The two remaining rails are from the old station.

Ozzy pictureCensored - Northport Power Plant
Nothing really, I work at a coal fired power plant and if you know your way around one you can tell what everything is on any other one, regardless on fuel type even when censored. I have no clue as to what they where trying to acomplish unless it was requested by the company itself for whatever reason.

Ozzy pictureCensored - Northport Power Plant
That is an oil or gas fired power plant (oil tanks) by the lack of a coal pile. It is still in operation by the looks of the water discharge canal. If this plant is censored it is because all power stations in the US now fall under the protection of the Homeland Security.

Could someone identify the specific building? I have no clue which one it is from the many I see on the map.

I used to be stationed in Fort Monmouth back in 1989 as a mechanic. Very good place, but very expensive to live around.

Ozzy pictureF-4 Phantom targets
I live west of the base and it is huge, in fact the world largest Air Force base. I noticed the same thing about all those airstrips, which are just mock up for test targets. Some nights when they are doing bombing test runs the blasts rattle the windows in my house 15 miles away.

Ozzy pictureFEMA Trailers - Katrina
It seems that way. So all they have to do is tie down the two on the ends. These were most likely leftover trailers from hurricane Ivan the year before. Many people were still receiving these a year later, all because of the massive amout of red tape to get one in you property. They were probably arranged like this in preparation for Katrina, I guess.

Ozzy pictureFEMA Trailers - Katrina
Good point. According to my wife who worked for the local government, they where brought here shortly after the storm since Katrina made landfall just west of the Florida panhandle. The area was designated as a staging area for supplies and the famous FEMA trailers. I did see many of these trailers being delivered to the Biloxi and nearby areas which were just as devastated as New Orleans, but not too many people saw that.

No hotels left there, just old houses and an old motel strip.
