From the Air VII: Movies Edition
wb_studio.jpg
For this From the Air challenge, I've decided to add an additional twist. Combining my love of geography and movies, I've scoured the Earth looking for satelite images of famous things from movies. So get your Google Maps, Wikipedia, and IMDb fired up and get ready to send me some answers.

Here's how this one will work. I'll give you the image and the name of the movie, you have to tell me what and where the images is. For example, were I to show you a picture of a large monolithic stone mountain and say "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", you'd have to give me "Devil's Tower National Monument, Wyoming." Cool with the rules?
