View Full Version : Possible inaccuracies

There are some possible inaccuracies in the database. Please try to find out, if they are correct or not:

Navigation Mast at Thule ( http://www.skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=870 ) is perhaps not 410 metres, but according to the book "Turmbauwerke, Bauverlag GmbH, Wiesbaden (Deutschland), 1966" 380 metres tall. However it is possible that its height was enlarged. Nevertheless this mast was not used as part of a navigation system.

However, there was or perhaps still is a high power LORAN-C transmitter at Angissq in Southern Greenland at 59°59'18"N, 45°10'24" W. High power LORAN-C transmitters used and uses approximately 410 metre tall mast radiators. Because LORAN-C is also a navigation system, this may be the Navigation Mast.

Year of built of chimney of Westerholt Power Station ( http://www.skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=4758 ) is surely incorrect, because no-one I believe would knock-down a just 9 year old supertall chimney.
It may be built around 1980, but I have got no exact data.

The Thule towers name has been changed. Unless you have more solid information, the rest of your correction is just as much as guess as my own would be.
