That would be the HOLLYWOOD sign.  That is where "His Brother Clint" Travel bug is trying to get to

Oooh, a race! By some strange coincidence, “His Brother Clint” is sitting about 2 m away from me right now :)

Doh!  Lost out by a minute and I had the next coordinates ready to go.  At least now the Sheriff knows where Clint is.  He's hot on his trail!

Alrighty then, thanks for yielding the next round MBeans. Being a meddlesome player, I’ve decided to make the next Wherezit? more difficult. You’ll find the coordinates are for an island. To claim the round, you’ll need to identify the island, but more specifically, the complex the coordinates point to.



The next Wherezit? coordinates are:



N17 18.399 W62 42.935



Hint #1



The complex received its last shipment at 1:15 PM, Friday July 22nd 2005.

Nice work grnbrg. I see I should’ve left the hint off :)



There’s an article commemorating the last trainloads of sugar cane to the factory at St Kitts sugar factory receives last canes and another about the history of the Sugar Factory at St. Kitts Sugar Factory and Compound. Slavery was a part of the history of St. Kitts, and it’s interesting to read about what drove it and how recently slavery was outlawed at Saint Kitts.



The Sugar Factory has a special place in my heart, because not only did it produce sugar, but also molasses and rum. At the ripe age of 13 I had the privilege of traveling to St. Kitts on a school exchange and bought myself two bottles of rum at the factory (only to have them confiscated later by Canada Customs).



Enough history! Grnbrg’s won the round and get’s to post the next Wherezit?

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona.  The Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center (AMARC) is an aircraft storage and maintenance facility.  In recent years, the facility has been designated as the sole respository of out-of-service aircraft from all branches of the United States government.

Well, I can tell you that the island is St. Kitts in the Carribean.  The coordinates appear to be close to the town of St. Peter's, not far from Basseterre.



I'm going to take a guess at what the complex is, and say that it's a sugar processing plant.

Ok, this is a place my wife and I went on our honeymoon.  The coordinates are: 



N 48° 50.104 E2° 19.885



To make it difficult, you have to tell me what is at this location and what it was used for during the 2nd world war.



Hint:  You can't see it above ground

The Catacombs under the steets of Paris, France. Parisian members of the French Resistance used the tunnel system during WWII.

This is so cool! I wouldn't have thought of it as a honeymoon spot though :)

Over 300 km of tunnels - wow! Good choice MBeans.

Here’s the next coordinates to keep this fast game going. For this round of Whatzit? you’ll need to provide the nickname the locals know this object by.



N58 45.621 W94 05.2275



This one’s not in Google Earth community!

She's known as "miss piggy", and is a popular spot for drinking parties apparently. 



I don't know if that is the right answer because that is in Google earth commuities.
