This contest closed today, Wednesday, July 4th 2012 at 2 pm Eastern Time.

Please stay tune for the results.

I am not on a press trip. I am at a place off-limits to outsiders. Only a chosen few ever had access, under strict security measures. I am instructed that I will have to wear protective clothing. I will be under constant surveillance. Pressure, no presents. Find out where I am, and you can win an iPad that was given by someone else to another TTAC writer at another location.

The iPad is a 16GB White iPad 2, WiFi only. It is preloaded with a press kit. Hint: The press kit has nothing to do with the location where I am. Not even close.

From July 9 through 13, TTAC will run a five-part series based on the location in the picture. By way of this five-part series, readers of TTAC will receive unprecedented access. You will receive a behind-the-scene look, exclusive, never before published proprietary pictures, and a glimpse into the future

The contest ends July 4th, 2012 at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.

The location and the winner will be disclosed after July 4th, 2012 at 2 p.m. Contestants can submit multiple guesses. Only one guess per person after July 4th, 2012 at 10:02 am. Correct guesses will not be acknowledged before contest ends. Official Rules apply.

    Whoever actually wins I think mitchw should be honorably mentioned since he was the first one who came up with LFA plant.

      @Michael Peerson Thanks gents. This was a lot of fun. I did have an edge though, in that I have been up close to an LFA with its hood up. I recognized the double oil filter cover image in Bertel's post, and from there it got a lot harder. Congrats to the winnner!
