A bit of a hike on airport property, but marker is right where it's supposed to be. 1 of 4 benchmarks on Medina Municipal Airport Property (1G5) where I am currently a student pilot. Marker is exactly as described and witness post and marker are in good shape. Fortunately, no planes were landing on runway 27 while I was there as marker is in clear zone - although I debate the "high ground" mention in the Documented History - it's significantly lower in elevation than the East end of Runway 27-9.

Control Text

  • This mark is at Medina Municipal Airport (1G5)
  • The horizontal coordinates were established by GPS observations and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in August 1997.
  • The orthometric height was determined by GPS observations and a high-resolution geoid model.
  • The X, Y, and Z were computed from the position and the ellipsoidal ht.
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The ellipsoidal height was determined by GPS observations and is referenced to NAD 83.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
