Virginia is a southern state too and just as south as Kentucky!

Answer by JazzyJezz
Yeah, it doesn’t seem to make a lot of geographic sense for Kentucky, but it is not so much geographical. For example, Louisiana Tech is in the Western Athletic Conference, Colorado is in the Pac-12 despite being three states from the Pacific coast, and TCU will be in the Big East in 2012 despite being in Texas. They take factors like academic standards and overall athletic performance (not just football) into account, although there are instances when schools will be split into different conferences depending on the sport (Ex: Notre Dame and BYU). It is really up to the schools themselves when they get a conference invite and Virginia Tech decided to join the ACC in 2004 when the Big East blew up in 2003. Plus Virginia is on the Atlantic Coast, so a move to the ACC made sense. Kentucky has been in the SEC since its inception in 1932 and believe it or not, Kentucky was pretty good at football back in the day when they were coached by Bear Bryant. They were not always bottom dwellers in football, so it makes sense that they are in the SEC.

UC Building 82 Implosion – South Charleston, WV – March 28, 2009

“Nat bad. Nat bad at’all.” – Quote from 2001 Three Rivers Stadium Implosion The old Union Carbide Building 82, which was donated to the University of Charleston, was imploded to free up the site’s acreage. It was a common site seen from I-64 when driving past South Charleston. The skyline will definitely be different, but hopefully it will be a sign of progress. The 6.8-acre site will be sold by the University of Charleston. (Pay no attention to the commentating onlookers. The police used the siren’s on their vehicles to warn everyone of the impending explosion. Also, the cloud was of dust, not smoke.) Charleston Gazette Link: www.wvgazette.com

Answer by Susan N
try to match the climate (weather and precipitation over time) to both areas. Then, available food source and predators. If they are similar, then most likely yes.

You should never introduce organisms where they do not belong. Look at Australia. They’re screwed.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Vought OS2U-3 Kingfisher:

The Kingfisher was the U.S. Navy’s primary ship-based, scout and observation aircraft during World War II. Revolutionary spot welding techniques gave it a smooth, non-buckling fuselage structure. Deflector plate flaps that hung from the wing’s trailing edge and spoiler-augmented ailerons functioned like extra flaps to allow slower landing speeds. Most OS2Us operated in the Pacific, where they rescued many downed airmen, including World War I ace Eddie Rickenbacker and the crew of his B-17 Flying Fortress.

In March 1942, this airplane was assigned to the battleship USS Indiana. It later underwent a six-month overhaul in California, returned to Pearl Harbor, and rejoined the Indiana in March 1944. Lt. j.g. Rollin M. Batten Jr. was awarded the Navy Cross for making a daring rescue in this airplane under heavy enemy fire on July 4, 1944.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Boeing B-29 Superfortress "Enola Gay":

Boeing’s B-29 Superfortress was the most sophisticated propeller-driven bomber of World War II and the first bomber to house its crew in pressurized compartments. Although designed to fight in the European theater, the B-29 found its niche on the other side of the globe. In the Pacific, B-29s delivered a variety of aerial weapons: conventional bombs, incendiary bombs, mines, and two nuclear weapons.

On August 6, 1945, this Martin-built B-29-45-MO dropped the first atomic weapon used in combat on Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later, Bockscar (on display at the U.S. Air Force Museum near Dayton, Ohio) dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. Enola Gay flew as the advance weather reconnaissance aircraft that day. A third B-29, The Great Artiste, flew as an observation aircraft on both missions.
