Hi Don I mentioned this in my mail yesterday. The picture is a ground- level 360 degree panorama uploaded by a user named Vasily Nikitenko. It's not an 'official' GE image. I couldn't find any useful trace on Mr Nikitenko, but he has many panoramas on GE from various parts of the world Martin Listen to 'Strange Days...
