Lingshui Air Base
This one-meter resolution, color satellite image of the Lingshui military airfield on the southeastern coast of Hainan Island in the South China Sea, was collected at 10:12 a.m. local time on April 4, 2001 (10:12 p.m. EDT on April 3, 2001) by Space Imaging's IKONOS satellite. The United States navy aircraft is clearly visible and parked on the taxiway adjacent to the end of the runway. This is the first high-resolution commercial satellite image taken of the Lingshui airfield. IKONOS travels 423 miles above the Earth's surface at a speed of 16,000 miles per hour.
