June 2001 Luncheon Photos

The below links are aerial views from Google Earth of Tananarive, Madagascar and the
former NASA station area. Most of the photos are dated October 23, 2003 by Google.
All of the notations that I have added to the photos are from how I remembered them
during the period of 1968-1971 when I was stationed there with the GRARR system.

= The Tananarive-Imerintsiatosika-NASA Station view.

The "Hairpin Curve" on the road from Imerintsiatosika to the Station.

The NASA Station (view #1)

Imerintsiatosika 'Metropolitan Area'.

The NASA Station (view #2)

Expanded view of the Telemetry & Comm area.

Expanded view of the GRARR/MSFN/Supply/Admin area.

Example of newer imagery from Google Earth.

If & when Google Earth upgrades the entire area to the newer, greener imagery
I wil make the change to all of the photos.

I welcome any additional information or corrections to my notes.
