Observations and Notes

The Stonehouse Arrow is located in the middle of an immense plain just off of I-80. 

The arrow is in very poor condition, but still basically complete.  All that is left where the generator shed sat is the outside foundation.  The total length is approximately 58 feet.

The pilot would approach the tail of the arrow on a compass heading of 126° (SE), and then exit the arrow on a compass heading of 160° (S-SE).
(All measurements and compass headings are approximate).
