According to Google, this Brown and Lambrecht Heliport is located in Illinois, Stephenson Airport should be in Wisconson and Essex Airport and Bristol Airport, I assume, must be in the UK...must be a Google Earth error on the airport layer.

theres also 3 schools....my explanation for this is that when they entered these locations into the matrix, they forgot to put lat. and long. values, so it just popped up with 0 0....this error could have been easily avoided if someone had bothered to make the computer force people to enter a value in the lat. and long. fields when typing in new values (anyone who has ever used microsoft access will probably know what im talking about....)

It also had 2 churches, one of them being new lebanon presbyterian, an historic landmark.

They are both located in south carolina
