hi again, what about just updating the latest version of this link to the thumbnail? Is that not possible? TIA again for your patience :).

BTW. I just noticed you were the mod that added the extra link. Is there any way to replace the thumbnail link with your .link? TIA

Yes, so it is. I clicked on the original link and its a panorama credited to Google user Jason Baird on Google maps and when you zoom out to map view, Google no longer shows the golden circles that used to be there. Now the only way in is the link a moderator inserted above or it is hidden near one of the entrances on street view. Wonder if that was Google messing with the links or Google users messing them up. Very strange.

What happened to the inside view of the Texas Depository? It looks like it was taken off Google Street View. Oh well, bad move IMHO. Just noticed this today December 27th 2016.

Nice. You should archive this with "wayback" or something like that :).

Google street view links on VirtualAGlobetrotting can drift. The victims home is just north on the same side of this street as the house with the red driveway and dark red sidewalk. just wanted to clarify that. If you are looking at the house with the red driveway on streetview, the victims house is on the left.

The victim's house is the one just NW of and next door to the house with the red driveway.

Also, the Ryan P22's wings are not tapered.

I took a closer look at this and the wingtips are not right. The P22 has more rounded wingtips So this is probably not a Ryan P22 Recruit or Harrison Ford's plane.
TROTER @ 2015-03-09 03:29:16
TROTER pictureHarrison Ford's Plane
This looks like it could be a P22 but the engine cowl and tail is not the right color for Harrison Ford's plane. Engine cowl on Ford's plane is dark red and half the vertical stab is red/white horizontal strips also the prop isn't the right color either. It's possible that there are covers over the tail and the engine cowl, it's hard to tell. Or it could be pre-restoration. But Ford is known for hangering his planes. Great find though and is a definite possibility that it is his plane.

This is the raw recording of ATC of Santa Monica Tower from the time Harrison Ford was given clearance to take off. Harrison Ford made a remarkable landing and lives up to his legendary status.

TROTER pictureRay McDonald House
This new story implies that McDonald may have acted in self defense against an armed "pregnant fiancé". He continues to play with the 49er's pending investigations that the local police refuse to comment on. I don't know the specifics of McDonald's case, but this recent NFL violence thing may be approaching a witch hunt in some cases.

The original local news link seems to be broken now, here is a more recent KTVU link but not sure how long that will last either. It's obvious that there is a motivation to try to keep McDonald "under the radar" as he is still not suspended and extremely popular as a valuable 49'er.

Here is another witness interviewed I had not seen before. Published August 21st.

Just to clarify, if you continue to head east on Canfield from the original link, the contractor witness' were located in the second parking lot past 2943 on the NNE side of Canfield. The camera position is about 30 feet past that towards the extreme north corner of the next apartment building.

New witness video with the contractor in the "pink shirt".

The contractor was located in the second parking lot on the NNE side of the street past 2943 off Canfield. It looks like the camera person was laying on the ground further away from the scene. This video was about 30 seconds after the bullets flew.

VGT community should develop a mirror thing for preserving these classic street views as they can be fleeting :)

Pilot error on the part of the gun instructor. My prayers are with instructors relatives and the young 9 year old girl and her parents, it was not their fault.

It looks like the biker was obviously speeding and lost control when he hit one of those reflective lane bump things that are popular in places where it never snows.

First time I have heard of a "hit and run" with a biker on a little 125 Honda, or what ever that was, against a mini van. So funny!

BTW, it does look like the Google street car stopped to talk to the Police in at least one of the images. You can see it as the biker gets away in the distance as the camera stopped snapping for a few seconds.

This is funny in that the biker was at fault and the subsequent images show the police chasing after the biker. These images are legal evidence of what actually happened and should be preserved if the case has not been solved by now.

Not sure why the default view changed, but if you click '6' on the level icons , just below the zoom bar, t should bring you to the original POV of this post.
