T-33 near Barajas

Post by Polleke_NL »

According to the EMOOS, there should be an all blue composite T-33 at road marker 16.2 of the A2. The book however does not mention coordinates. I have been following the entire A2 on Google Earth but could not find this T-Bird, does anyone have more details on her whereabouts?
I'll be in Madrid on Tuesday and am hoping to catch her.....

I think I saw this one, 2 months ago. I am pretty sure it is located in the industrial area just east of the M50 (but visible from the A2). If you check Google Streetview, a big truck is blocking the view to the right so you cannot see it. This is just where I think I remember it was, so don't shoot me if I was wrong..

It can be found at a petrol station along the A2 motorway, displayed on pole facing north.

I found it, although not visible in Google Earth, she can be found on bing.maps, indeed on top of a building.
(After close examination, GE does show part of her shadow though....., weird?? :roll: )
Exact coordinates are 40 26'54.84"N / 3 31'21.08"W

Thanks for your help guys!..
