A bit blurry
This is the closest that I managed to photograph
Made it!
Aerial view

I made 3 "visits" to the site today. The first was on my way to work. I probably passed within a metre or two while driving, at 5am.


After work, I flew some circuits with my dad, and the site was pretty much exactly under the circuit.



Finally, after the flying, I took my dad to the site by car. We parked in a nearby car park (to the right of the cropped aerial photo) shortly after 4pm, and used his HTC Hero to find our way.
