    Aerial view quiz

    AERIAL VIEW QUIZ
    This is tough....but Fun


    These pics were taken from an airplane and you have to guess where the location is.


    *****NOTE: When you click on the LINK Below, the landmark appears and there are four possible answers. The first answer is always checked. That may or may not be the correct answer. You can agree or change the answer by checking the correct answer.

    There are 16 photos and you probably won't get a perfect score. I didn't!

    Not too bad for never having been to most of these places!

    I missed one. It was pure luck I tell you. I hadn't even heard of some of those places and I wouldn't know one from the other. The one I have been to is the one I got wrong! Go figure.

    I got all but 2 and 15 correct. But a couple of the right answers were complete guesses, especially the sports field ones.

    Thanks, that was fun, I missed 5 as well. I think one of the most puzzling was the leaning tower, I looked at it again after I found out I was wrong and I still don't see it, maybe because we always see it from a horizontal plane. I also missed Niagara Falls and I've been there four times!

    I was quite happy that the only ones I got wrong were the specific American baseball field thingies. Very fun to do.

    Ditter that was fun! I missed three, but really should have known the one.... Everything was so symmetrical it smacked of Disney planned park.
    I love looking at maps too.

    The aerial view looks like a farm. The Leaning Tower looks like a grain silo.

    It was an interesting quiz though.

    I'll just say I got more wrong than I got right. Geography is not my strong suit. Thank God for my Garmin

    I missed 5, and sadly one I missed was The Alamo, which I have seen from the ground a number of times.

    I also missed the Cape Canaveral launch pad, and we lived a few miles from there for 3 years. Never saw it from the air, though. There are several launch pads, and only one is shown, but I'm sure it wouldn't have helped to know which.

    Thanks for the interesting link!

    I got 11/16 correct. Not bad since I guessed at most. I was very young when I saw the US side of the falls. I remember it smelled like a lot of dead fish.
