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?

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.

73: Which has been torn down, the one in the puzzle, or the prototype in Spain?

The prototype in Spain was torn down in 1989.

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?
