Almost all recycled, I'm afraid.

#1 is the Nevis Highwire Platform in Queenstown, New Zealand, TAR2.10.
#2 (yep, Slowhatch!) is from New Zealand, and appeared on the TAR2 intro flash.
#4, by Boingo, is recycled from TAR1.
#5 is Bangkok, used in TAR2's flash as well.

The People's Liberation Army Hong Kong Garrison was shown in TAR2's flash as too, the Eiffel Tower one appeared in TAR4, and the Hong Kong skyline is from a stock footage sequence used in TAR2. The Mexico City monument was the very first route marker in TAR3 (the Angel of Independence).

Don't think that's Viaduto Santa Efigênia though, that one runs above a road...

Nothing much left, except the India (#6) one? Looks like the Red Fort (TAR1) to me...



(Oh Puddin, I should have found a better photo...)

Season 8 Arizona?

#8



My best bet is Rainbow Natural Bridge in the Najavo Nation, northeast Arizona. However, it could also be in Arches National Park Utah.

Christchurch airport.

SLOWHATCH, I don't know whether your signpost is the other side of #2 of the screencaps (I think it probably isn't). Anyway, for #2, there is no possibility that the signpost is in Christchurch. Follow this logic:

1. Given the larger distance to Sydney(2169 km) than Melbourne(1682 km), the place must be south of Melbourne to make that so.
2. The only place in Australia of consequence south of Melbourne is Hobart and that is far too close.
3. That leaves only New Zealand as a possibility.
4. My world distance calculator gives these distances:
    Auckland to Sydney 2151 km  Auckland to Melbourne 2614 km
    Christchurch to Sydney 2123 km  Christchurch to Melbourne 2387 km
5. To Melbourne is too high, so we need something southwest of Christchurch. There is only one major airport that fits, Queenstown, where AR2 did some bungee jumping and other extreme sports. I haven't found a distance calculator that includes Queenstown but a rough approximation of how much the distance is to Melbourne should be in the right ballpark.

I have discovered a signpost in Auckland airport that looks totally different and it states Sydney 2159 km.
I have also not been able to discover any signpost at the Queenstown airport so far.
I have done an approximation of the lower distance that Queenstown would bring from Melbourne compared to Christchurch. It would be less than 400 km and I need a reduction of about 700km.
For purposes of validating what I was doing I tried Dunedin airport, southeast of Queenstown. It gave results of 2087 km to Sydney and 2253 km to Melbourne.
What I believe this shows is that there isn't going to be any airport on New Zealand that will be able to approximate the required 2169/1682 from the signpost. The only spot which would have those distances would be in the Tasman Sea off the west coast of the South Island of New Zealand.

Even the photog seems confused (see comments). As far as the mileages go, Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington seem the closest matches. Queenstown is a little closer (below). OK, more searching then; thanks.

Better known simply as the Angel.  It is just across from the American Embassy and I stared at it everyday for six years!
