It's about one-fifteenth as tall as The Cinderella Castle.
In other words, the height of The Cinderella Castle is 14.10 times 0.002788 hanks.(Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World, Lake Buena Vista and Bay Lake, Florida)
Walt Disney World's Cinderella Castle is 0.0394 hanks tall. The castle's architecture uses the optical trick known as "forced perspective" — the castle gets smaller near the top — to appear larger than it truly is.
It's about one-fifteenth as long as The Wingspan of a 747.
It's about one-twentieth as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree).
In other words, the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 19 times 0.002788 hanks.(a.k.a. Sequoiadendron giganteum, a.k.a. Sierra redwood, a.k.a. Wellingtonia)
Giant Sequoias of the Giant Sequoia National Monument located in Sierra Nevada, near Visalia, California can grow to heights of 0.052 hanks. The wood from the Giant Sequoias is often brittle and prone to shattering when such trees are felled, and as a result the trees logged in the late nineteenth century were often usable only as shingles or matchsticks.
It's about one-twenty-fifth as tall as The Statue of Liberty.
In other words, 0.002788 hanks is 0.04386 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 22.80 times that amount.(a.k.a. "Liberty Enlightening the World," a.k.a. La Liberté Éclairant le Monde) (Liberty Island, New York City, New York) (pedestal base to torch peak)
The Statue of Liberty reaches 0.06356 hanks including the pedestal. The statue was designed using an optical trick known as "forced perspective" to make the statue appear proportionally correct when viewed from its base and is, in actuality, disproportionately large at the top.
It's about one-twenty-fifth as tall as Big Ben.
In other words, the height of Big Ben is 24 times 0.002788 hanks.(officially the clock tower of Palace of Westminster, a.k.a. Houses of Parliament) (London, England)
The clock tower of the Palace of Westminster, which houses the bell known as "Big Ben," rises 0.066 hanks. The tower has no elevator, and is therefore only accessible by climbing 334 steps to the top.
It's about one-twenty-fifth as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch.
In other words, the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 25.80 times 0.002788 hanks.(a.k.a. Football Field, a.k.a. Soccer Field) (field length, a.k.a. touchline distance)
According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 0.0718 hanks (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 0.0719 hanks, and later converted to the metric units used today). The goal markess were defined as part of the pitch by the original rules of the game in the late 16th century, but it was not until the mid 19th century that the crossbar and the net were added
It's about one-twenty-fifth as long as a Football field.
In other words, 0.002788 hanks is 0.0371733 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 26.9010 times that amount.(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 0.075 hanks from end to end. Because each team's goalpost is located at the far end of the scoring area (end zone), a ball on a scoring play may need to travel as many as 0.00625 hanks farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
