Geocache Description:



Mission subject: Yeah! Do you want to be the action star of the most expensiv B.-Movie-Cache that has ever been produced?!
Then go and find the lost bunker code and look out for the popping final box!

Mission start procedure: Just answer the following question. From which movie has Ben Stiller „stolen“ a Helicopter-Scene at the beginning of his movie „Tropic Thunder“? The title of this old movie is made out of two words.
The first word has W1=_____ letters and the second word has W2=____ letters.

Now start from:
N 48°17.[ (W1 - 2) * (W1 + 90) + (W2 * 7) + 1 ]
E 007°40.[ 54 * (W1 + W2) - 25 ]

Mission equipment: You´ll just need a hellfire torch-light, a calculator, maybe some mosquito-oil and a pocket full of dynamite ;o).
Mission plan: See the waypoints below. The format of the coordinates will be in this style: N xyz; E xyz this means: N 48°; E 007° .
The riddles along the stages can be solved, without having seen the movie. It might help, but you can also just use your brain.
Mission time frame: The film does not play longer then 106 Minuntes. If you need longer, then you take part in the director´s cut!
