Map 05: “Google” map of JHQ before closure (28MB)
Created by: fred.williams@www.jhq-rheindahlen.com

The map was created using a large number of screenshots taken from Google Maps. This was done in the months before the closure of JHQ as the map will change over time as the buildings are demolished and Google’s planes will fly over the area again and create new maps thus removing all evidence of the existence of JHQ!
