Err ok then Tine. I don't know any of them though. Although I'm guessing pic 8 is somewhere in flanders. ;)

more hints: 3 are not in Europe
Quite a few capitals are represented
Great Britain is represented the most.

#2 HK
#3 A
#4 B
#5 L
#8 A?
#11 HK
#12 BA?
#13 B

gentenaire

#2 HK : -
#3 A: +
#4 B: +
#5 L: +
#8 A?: +
#11 HK: +
#12 BA?: -
#13 B : +

Don't know what you meant by BA (Buenos Aires?) , but it's definitely not BA, it's in a European capital.

Josh
Dec 3rd, 2002, 03:54 PM
Yup I thought it was Buenos Aires...Hmmm European capital, is it L?

And the airport, I really thought it was Hong Kong but if not, then it must be T. :p

gentenaire
Dec 3rd, 2002, 03:55 PM
Nope, not L and not T either (though T is close).

Josh
Dec 3rd, 2002, 04:01 PM
Not L either? Hmmm it really looks familiar but I can't place it.

It looks like there's a lot of planes from the Japanese Airline on that airport so......is it O? or N? :o

Josh

For 12, just do a Google image search on the European capitals and on page 6,15 and 17 you'll see bits of this building :)
