After digging into it, it looks like Google Earth uses a focal length of 31.2mm and there is no easy way to change it.  Anyone want to speculate on the focal length of the camera used to take the Lambrecht search photo?  I assume that since the photographer is not known that it will be difficult to determine the camera used, but perhaps it was standard issue on the USS Colorado.

The flare pistol and flares were reportedly left in New Guinea to save weight.

Hi Erik, 

Thanks for the info.  For some reason my snapshot view is grayed out.  It' s under the Edit pull-down, but not accessible.  How do you enable it so that the viewpoint numbers can be entered?  I assume that the right most screen cap in your images was done with the viewpoint info that you have provided and it looks like an excellent fit.  I'd like to play around with it in more detail so now I just need to get the snapshot view to work.
