Longest hits (in several categories)

Post by lmviterbo » Sun May 21, 2017 6:59 am

Here's a list of the longest hits in several categories. In italics, I list the longest theoretically possible links, followed by the longest known so far, in bold.

Absolute longest hit:
20015 km (to discover)
20009 km Image Chincha Alta - Image Siam Reap
20004 km :flag-es: Córdoba (14012) - Image Hamilton (3206)

18821 km Image Christchurch (8053) - :flag-be: Wingene (8750) Seda - Talking Head (237 days) 2018-06-17 07:08:44

Within the Euro Area (countries using the Euro = Eurozone):
17640 km :flag-fr: Base Dumont d'Urville (98414) - :flag-fr: Miquelon-Langlade (97500)
09620 km :flag-fi: Karttula (71570) - :flag-fr: Saint-Denis (97400) Ratskin - dingchavez (548 days) 2011-05-18 06:54:00

Within the Euro Area in Continental Europe:
04281 km :flag-fi: Nuorgam (99990) - :flag-es: Tarifa (11380)
03851 km :flag-pt: Albufeira (8200) - :flag-fi: Nurmes (75500) Karhu IVA - viivi14 (136 days) 2010-12-09 17:26:54

Flying over Euro Area land only:
02838 km :flag-pt: Cabo de São Vicente (8670-390) - :flag-sk: Osadné (067 34) (over Andorra too)
02829 km :flag-pt: Vila do Bispo (8650-406) - :flag-sk: Osadné (067 34)

02548 km :flag-sk: Brezno (97701) - :flag-pt: Amadora (2720-268) JARDO™ - Titania_eu (1157 days) 2016-10-23 12:09:10

Outside the Euro Area:
12846 km Image Buzău (120083) - Image Bahía Blanca (8107) 2019-11-18 01:19:51 (flying over the Euro Area)
08423 km Image Akashi (6730000) - Image Lviv / Львів (7907) 2017-03-26 18:55:49 (not even flying over the Euro Area)

Dead straight vertical line within the Euro Area:
03793 km :flag-gr: Lachania / Λαχανιά (85109) - :flag-fi: Nuorgam (99990)
02747 km :flag-fi: Tuuri (63610) - :flag-gr: Voula / Βούλα (16673) kirasi - loup1771 (304 days) 2013-06-11 01:00:32

Dead straight horizontal line within the Euro Area:
05301 km :flag-at: Eberau (7521) - :flag-fr: Miquelon-Langlade (97500)
01252 km :flag-be: Brasschaat (2930) - :flag-pl: Lublin (20-093) E-verzamelaar - alederp (38 days) 2012-05-29 16:53:29

Other categories welcome! I'm thinking of "Within the same country — for each of the Euro Area countries" (within Germany already here, within France it's the 17640 km line mentioned above), "Within places sharing the same main official language", etc.

NOTE: this is a WIP. I had broken links to most maps for theoretically possible, so I just deleted the links and started replacing them with the correct ones (only two so far, sorry).

Top national hits (longest hit/country only) in non-Euro Area states (zero-km hits that, in a few cases, are the "longest" national hits in a few countries have been left out) :

Image 3215 km
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=176534451 (those usernames raise an eyebrow...)

Image 163 km
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=158523153

:flag-ch: 154 km
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=157332421
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=157403076

Image 112 km
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=136636167

:flag-uk: 106 km
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=126952289

:flag-cz: 64 km
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=175219920

Image 44 km
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=8265608

Image 13 km
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=188889005

:flag-pl: 9 km
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=50261983

:flag-dk: 7 km
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=163045518 (both users mention a donation box at an airport but 7km apart, which seems weird)

:flag-bg: 6 km
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=141126345

Image 2 km
https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=175879701 (weird for several reasons)

Latest check: 2020/01/16 (it's a rather tedious process going through all non-Euro Area countries, checking for hits. I've provided the last date on which I did this so nobody else wastes their time doing it, as it is something that is only worth doing once every six months or so).

I updated the first post with a new longest hit.


Also, for the list of extra-Eurozone nationals, I rechecked them and here are three new ones:

Image 112 km
https://eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=136636167

Image 13 km
https://eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=188889005

Image 2 km
https://eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=175879701 (weird for several reasons)


Finally, finding the longest hit outside the Euro Area would be great. Here's the longest ones I found, all from different pairs of countries:

Image Image 10303 km
https://eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=193120616

:flag-ch: Image 9211 km
https://eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=142610911

Image Image 8932 km
https://eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=50011850

Image Image 8423 km
https://eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=174399306

Image Image 6685 km

Apart from the suspicions about the hit, but... it seems to have been entered in the same place (same city and same postal code)! Why are 2 Km of distance reported?

https://www.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=200165676 :o

Both users raise an eyebrow, especially the one in Argentina, who got 2 hits out of 7 notes registered on the same day... Well, so far it hasn't been deemed fake, so there it is.
