August 4, 1968 - Everett Wayne Shaw, a 39-year-old mechanic, stole a Cessna 180 and flew on a collision course with the Landmark. He clipped the "L" sign on the roof and lost control, crashing into the Convention Center across the street. Notes in his apartment indicated that it was a planned suicide. (Vintage Research)
Twitpic of the week
What’s that you say? You liked last show’s Twitpic of the week view but wonder what the reverse view would be like. Boom! @VegasBright has you covered with pretty much exactly that. This may be the best version of this view I’ve ever seen. Photos like this are the ones I get lost in, analyzing all the little things most overlook, especially when you have sexy as fuck properties like Cosmopolitan and Bellagio front and center. I’m amused by the shit ton of palm trees located in the middle of Las Vegas Blvd, how the AC unit on top of Cromwell is cleverly obstructed from photos taken south of the property and how Bellagio’s spa tower looks like a backyard shed compared to the main building that stands as a work of art. 23 days till 360VV4 and really looking forward to seeing views like this in person.
