Observations and Notes

Location of this arrow was sent by Dan R. Linebarger.  He writes: The coordinates on the website take you to the airport. The coordinates above take you east of the approach end of runway 29 of that airport and that is where the arrow is located. 

Yesterday I went to the arrow in Midland County, Texas. I posted pictures on my FaceBook page and now a friend from the local newspaper wants to visit the site for a possible news story.
