Thus far I have found them in the process of updating:
Scotland from Edinburgh over to Glasgow, though not including Glasgow. Also going north of Edinburgh.

Ulsan, South Korea including one of the largest shipyards in the world. Spider should look for big ships there.

Hainan sub base. Han class submarine at a pier and some larger ships nearby I've not bothered to identify yet.

Remember all of those States that suddenly showed up with high resolution imagery when going 'back' in time? That imagery is now the current imagery for States such as South Dakota and Wisconsin. I thought Virginia was getting an update, but on looking at it more closely it's not updated as of yet.

Yea...no joke there..

950-999 footers: 8
1000-1099 footers: 7
1100-1199 footers: 4

There's a ship there that's 200 feet wide..never seen that kind before.

It's a new type of oil rig, the ERHA FSPO made for SHELL in Nigeria.

Here is a forum with photos:

And you get more infos if you google ERHA FSPO.

Cool find, Spider. I guess your find could be in the next newsletter. :)
