#6 probably isn't the EA-300LP linked to, because that model wasn't unveiled until Jul 27. It's parent, the EA-300L, has been around for a few years, but unless a sharp-eyed person can make out the registration number, this list of 134 planes will have to do.
The bridge and the ruins are starting to bug me  {{{}. It should be a lot easier than it is: a four-lane cantilever crossing a wide river next to a fair-sized city. I'm not discounting that it might be overseas or from a previous season, but it has a Midwestern look about it. And since we now know that Sedona is on the route, I'm guessing maybe southern AZ for the ruins; the flag in front means it might be a state or federal attraction.
But no luck so far.

I slide all the way up the Mississippi using Google map and only found that one four-laner in  Cincinnati.

If you have broadband, Google Earth is faster; you can zoom into a city and eliminate its bridges in a couple of minutes (once I find a possible match, I do a Google image search--"X City skyline"--to doublecheck). I've been all over the Mississippi-Missouri system with no luck so far. Also fwiw it looks like there's a small sandbar or island just offshore (or maybe it's just the camera angle).

Last time I looked Cinncinatti was still on the Ohio River.

There are 47 bridges listed as crossing the Mississippi. Those other cantilevered bridges (i. e. Outerbridge Crossing between New York and New Jersey) look similar to the one in the vidcap, but no River Boat gamblers in this neck of the woods.

Thanks GMan, I wasn't really paying attention!

Don't they all connect somewhere!  I'm in California.

I tried the Google Earth on the Cincin bridge.  Google's resolution there isn't so good (compared to Global's).  But when I went into tilt mode to get the camera angle toward downtown it became clear that this is not the right bridge.  Google Earth showed that there a tall bank to the river that would hide any view of downtown.

So search on.

I'm dead sure.

1. The crescent city connection does not come down in a diamond shape like the one in the clip. Don't know if I'm explaining right but check the pic.
2. Check the support structure closely. They do not match.
3. The second bridge does not exist in New Orleans. Think of the size of the ships that have to pass under any bridge there.

And, finally I've personnally viewed the New Orleans cityscape from across the river and it just doesn't match up.

I can't see where this could be anywhere on the Miss. River due to the river traffic and and that second bridge.

The flag on the right is a US flag (I think); if we could ID the flag on the left it might narrow the search.
