The airfield is named after a marine major. The event(s) occured during November, awhile ago.

That's a complex clue. It'd take the wisdom of Solomon to decipher.

Were your November events on land or water?

I'll sit on my iron bottom and try to sound it out.

You've nailed it already. I guess I should clarify that the on land part was merely a last gasp effort by the aggressor to fulfill their mission after a resounding defeat.

I don't know. But there is a lot of yellow to the west.


Like a Yellow Sea? Is anything in South Korea that arid, or anything in North Korea that google-mapped?

LXXIII: (73) Need another clue?

This is the only one of it's kind, though there was a prototype running successfully in Spain. It's been torn down, so there was no meaningful picture. A much larger version was planned for Australia, but has not been built yet. And it is an energy provider.

I captured it from google earth (ver 6.1.0.5001) today. I've been scouring that area looking for your view, and now I know why I couldn't find it! Your latest clue gave me the name of the town and I was able to find it.

Answer: What In The World Happened Here? LXXIII: (73)

This is apparently the world's first commercial Solar Updraft Tower, though the illustration offered showed it under construction. Oddly enough, Google Earth now has a different view, though, an up-to-date image would show the completed project. Here is the wiki.



Here is a good reference from the SolarPedia.

And here is a press release indicating that the plant will go online 12/10/2011.

Still open: LXX

We could use some input from Sara. I think that everyone knows that the original photo is of the Stewart, British Columbia- Hyder, Alaska area. Events identified with the area were a killer avalanche and a nuclear bomber crash.

But it was worth it, right? That has to be one of the greatest pieces of legislation in US history!

Who knew that a century would go by and the economy would turn south?
