  • Photos! Great Wall Aerial Photos

    Before good satellite images of China were available, I used to spend a lot of time looking for aerial photos of the Great Wall. They were not easy to find. Here are a few of the ones that I did find. I tried to take a few of my own with little success. Commercial airlines don't fly very low over the Great Wall. I hope other members that have any aerial photos will post them here.

                  Last year as I was flying from Yinchuan to Beijing, the flight path took us over the Great Wall at Huanghuacheng. Approximate GPS ref 40

                    Great Wall of China from a plane!

                    Hi Micheal. Those are very nice photos of Huanghuacheng. The first one really gives a good idea of what the place looks like.

                          I think you have Zhengbeilou too far down (east). It should be at 40
