Panoramic View from East to South of Mapping Mission Supply, Hanger and Flight Line. It's an optical illusion because the middle section missing. Joe Pike's wife Carolyn says that the missing space (between the Cessna and U-8) is where the Russian helicopter was parked. I had forgotten about that big Russian helicopter--Bill Phillipson told me a very good story about it.
