A drawing outweighs photography. Check.

I have ignored nothing. And you're talking about Google Earth the way it 'may' have been when it first came out. What we can do, however, is test the known measures against the GE image, and voila, they match. This makes the photo valid. Shall I post another screen shot showing this to increase your embarrassment? Or, anyone who likes can boot up the program and check for themselves with the measuring tool.

What a surprise.:) And without even bothering to verify for yourself, rather choosing an invalid argument to stomp your feet.

Here's a photo *not from Google Earth*, single frame, no stitching, and when overlain onto the same timeline photo used above to flirp your floop it matches exactly, verifying the GE image is pure and correct:

All which turned out poppycock. :) But, nice attempt at deflection. The lines you drew on your 'plan drawing' were quite easily shown as utterly false, so leave Lehner out of it. Photographic proof shows you are faking a set of lines.

Yawn.

(By that, I mean I'm tired.) Goodnight and good luck.
