We're going old school on this From the Air challenge. Very old school. Think you can identify the following images I pulled off Google Maps (with inspiration from a friend, who told me she wanted a subtle shout out)? Put on your fedoras, grab your shovels, and see if you can figure out where in the world (and what in the world) the following images come from.
