Contest #598: Dubai Miracle Gardens, United Arab Emirates

Where else do you find a plane covered in flowers?!

The Dubai Miracle Garden is a flower garden located in the district of Dubailand, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The garden was launched on Valentine’s Day in 2013. The garden occupies over 72,000 square metres, making it the world’s largest natural flower garden featuring over 50 million flowers and 250 million plants. It’s not open from May to November because of the heat and when it is open uses about 750,000 litres of water a day. Not a small amount for a desert location.

Contest #595: the DHL ramp at Anchorage International Airport, Alaska, US

This week, we went north to Alaska and to be more specific, the DHL ramp at the Anchorage International Airport.

The pattern of the 6 planes spots was intriguing and the Flying Boxcar on the right side was left in as an additional aid to help find the location.

The hint referred to the fact that DHL is German-owned and therefore not restricted by US law from flying into North Korea.

Airport from the south:
