The place has been referred to as El Dorado, but the gold comes in identical, discrete units.

Is this the fabled school of hard knocks?

I'd characterize it as a far-away place that has proven to be an incredible concentration of talent.

Talent with fortitude? Wasn't OddJob employed there for a short period?

Fortitude is good. A prime characteristic is endurance, followed by a healthy dose of speed.

I don't associate OddJob with the place, but maybe I need to watch Goldfinger again. It's been a long time.

Too many buildings, too few wings, and two few engines to be the Wright Brothers. Plus it has a Euro look.

Oops! I meant to write "too few engines." But I provided an excuse for a pic of the Wright Brothers. Meanwhile, that other aircraft looked like it had no engine at all.

Are pilots, not all dead yet. At first I thought the wings might be a clue about the Burbank Portal to Valhalla, but it appears not.

The glider over a European city must be someone else.

too many quizzes going on for me to keep straight.

I am trying to keep the summary up to date. I claim that there are four currently active puzzles, including the two flight-related ones.

Finally, I tried "glider low over town" and added possible countries, one by one. Brute force solution to a puzzle about an elegant plot.

And the launching ramp is even in the picture. I had no idea what that was!

Eva thinks we should give out another clue about her little church, but that would be redundant.

You should comment on the Yorkshire pudding picture, though.
