Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about three-fifths as long as The Circumfrence of Earth.
In other words, 16,000 hanks is 0.584120570 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 1.71197530 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 27,391.6050 hanks. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
It's about one-and-four-fifths times as long as The Diameter of Earth.
In other words, 16,000 hanks is 1.83506890 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 0.544938670 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 8,719.0186 hanks at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1942 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 71.50 hanks.
It's about two-and-a-half times as long as The Great Wall of China (total).
In other words, 16,000 hanks is 2.650 times the length of The Great Wall of China (total), and the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 0.3770 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (total length, all branches)
The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 6,050 hanks. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about three-and-a-half times as long as The Amazon River.
In other words, 16,000 hanks is 3.6370 times the length of The Amazon River, and the length of The Amazon River is 0.2750 times that amount.
(from Nevado Mismi, Arequipa, Peru through near Marajó, Brazil) (approximate distance)
The Amazon River has an approximate distance of 4,400 hanks. Although by most measures it is the largest and one of the most significant rivers in the world, the region surrounding the Amazon is mostly sparsely populated and the river itself has no bridges across it at any point.
It's about three-and-a-half times as long as The Great Wall of China (wall only).
In other words, 16,000 hanks is 3.740 times the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only), and the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only) is 0.26740 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (wall segments only)
The Great Wall of China has total wall segment length of 4.2780 hanks. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about five times as long as I-80.
In other words, 16,000 hanks is 5.04711 times the length of I-80, and the length of I-80 is 0.1981330 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Interstate 80, a.k.a. Keystone Shortway) (net length)
Interstate 80, crosses the continent of North America from Teaneck, New Jersey to San Francisco, California and covers a total length of 3,170.130 hanks. A 41.0105 hanks stretch between mile marker 318 in Grand Island, Nebraska and mile marker 390 in Lincoln, Nebraska is the longest straight path in the US Interstate system.
It's about five times as long as The Distance from L.A. to New York.
In other words, 16,000 hanks is 5.210 times the length of The Distance from L.A. to New York, and the length of The Distance from L.A. to New York is 0.1920 times that amount.
(Los Angeles, California to New York City, New York) (via I-10 E, I-15 N, I-70 E, I-76 E, I-80 E, I-280 E)
The total length of the freeway route from Los Angeles, California to New York City, New York via Interstate 80 is 3,070 hanks long. This route intersects eleven states and several major cities, including Las Vegas, Nevada; Denver, Colorado; Lincoln, Nebraska; Omaha, Nebraska; Des Moines, Iowa; South Bend, Indiana; and Cleveland, Ohio.
