Lost and Found
Some of my favorite photos from this blog are those of the old Russian aircraft found around Bagram. Thanks to Google Earth I was actually able to locate the location... You can clearly see the large AN-12 aircraft and to the southwest is the MIG-21 in the Google Earth photo. You can see the same AN-12 and the MIG-21 in Major John's photo.
Google Earth is a great program. My son (age 10) likes to type in keywords ("Taj Mahal," "Big Ben," or "Acropolis") and then "fly" to those location. He also likes to scroll/zoom around from place to place freely. What a great learning tool for students and for adults (like me) whose geography knowledge is not so strong.
