Congrats to All who played and the Winner 'gtho4'

A BIG Thank You to Baglady on such a wonderful topic last week and such a hard spin-off for me to think of.

Sypher's Spin-Off

This week's topic has a slight twist and will need a bit of research before posting.
Intrigued ?

This week's topic is 'Cities'
Now before you say..."We've had that already"...This is the TWIST. As this is a spin-off I had to find something to do with flying/wings etc etc....So, When you post your entry, the city MUST BE NO FURTHER AWAY FROM THE LAST ENTRY BY 6000 MILES .

Example

First entry states - TOKYO, Japan

Next person must find a city starting with an 'O' as well as being no further away than 6000 miles. So you couldn't have 'Ottawa, Canada' as this is 6439 miles away.

Nexy Entry - OSAKA, Japan (250 miles)
And so on and so on....


Valid Entries

All entries must state the country and how far away that city is from the last entry. (Only exception is the very first entry)

Invalid Entries

Any City over the 6000 miles limit will be disqualified.


This week is kicked off by 'Dumbell' using the letter 'T'

Good Luck Everyone

Ouroux-sous-le-Bois-Sainte-Marie

France

Well within 6000 mile limit. None of the distance calculators recognize the town in Spain, but I did find it's long and lat. Once I figure out the following formula, I'll be able to tell you how far away it is.
<%
'How far between Santa Cruz, California and Redding, California...
Distance = Round(LatLonDistance(36.97270, -121.97318, 40.627751, -122.352962),2)
Response.Write "Distance = " & Distance & " Miles<br>"

Private Function LatLonDistance(a1, b1, a2, b2)
Dim r, Pi, ArcLength, Length

Pi = 3.1415926535
r = 3963.21 'Radius of earth in miles. Can be changed to meters

'Convert Degrees to Radians
a1 = a1 * (pi/180)
b1 = b1 * (pi/180)
a2 = a2 * (pi/180)
b2 = b2 * (pi/180)

ArcLength = Cos(a1) * Cos(b1) * Cos(a2) * Cos(b2) + Cos(a1) * Sin(b1) * Cos(a2) * Sin(b2) + Sin(a1) * Sin(a2)
Length = ArcCos(ArcLength) * r
LatLonDistance = Length

end function

Private Function ArcCos(x)
Arccos = Atn(-X / Sqr(-X * X + 1)) + 2 * Atn(1)
end function
%>
