In other words, 0.2210 hanks is 3.4770 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.28760 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)

It's about four-and-a-half times as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree).
In other words, the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.230 times 0.2210 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 four-and-a-half times as long as The Wingspan of a 747.
In other words, 0.2210 hanks is 4.720 times the length of The Wingspan of a 747, and the length of The Wingspan of a 747 is 0.2120 times that amount.(a.k.a. Boeing 747, a.k.a. Jumbo Jet, a.k.a. Queen of the Skies) (for Boeing 747-8 series)

It's about five-and-a-half times as tall as The Cinderella Castle.
In other words, 0.2210 hanks is 5.610 times the height of The Cinderella Castle, and the height of The Cinderella Castle is 0.1780 times that amount.(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 five-and-a-half times as tall as The Leaning Tower of Pisa.
In other words, 0.2210 hanks is 5.730 times the height of The Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the height of The Leaning Tower of Pisa is 0.1750 times that amount.(a.k.a. The Tower of Pisa, a.k.a. Torre pendente di Pisa) (Pisa, Italy) (height along center axis)
The Leaning Tower of Pisa stands 0.0385 hanks tall along the angle of its lean. In May of 2008, in an successful effort to stabilize the tower, 70 tonnes of earth were removed from the tower's base on the side opposite the lean.
It's about one-fifth as long as The Preakness Stakes.
In other words, 0.2210 hanks is 0.16918660 times the length of The Preakness Stakes, and the length of The Preakness Stakes is 5.9106340 times that amount.(Pimlico Race Course, Baltimore, Maryland) (total race length)
