Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about seven-and-a-half times as long as The Wingspan of a 747
In other words, the length of The Wingspan of a 747 is 0.130 times 3,460 shaftments.
(a.k.a. Boeing 747, a.k.a. Jumbo Jet, a.k.a. Queen of the Skies) (for Boeing 747-8 series)
The wingspan of a Boeing 747-8 is 449 shaftments. Fully loaded, the 747 can travel 54,400,000 shaftments before refueling.
It's about seven times as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree)
In other words, 3,460 shaftments is 6.90 times the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree), and the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.140 times that amount.
(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 500 shaftments. 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 five-and-a-half times as tall as The Statue of Liberty
In other words, 3,460 shaftments is 5.6710 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.17630 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 610.20 shaftments 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 five-and-a-half times as tall as Big Ben
In other words, the height of Big Ben is 0.180 times 3,460 shaftments.
(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 630 shaftments. The tower has no elevator, and is therefore only accessible by climbing 334 steps to the top.
It's about five times as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch
In other words, 3,460 shaftments is 5.02 times the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch, and the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 0.1990 times that amount.
(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 689 shaftments (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 690 shaftments, 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 five times as long as a Football field
In other words, 3,460 shaftments is 4.805560 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 0.2080920 times that amount.
(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 720 shaftments 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 60 shaftments farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
It's about four times as tall as The Great Pyramid of Giza
In other words, 3,460 shaftments is 4.10 times the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza, and the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 0.240 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Pyramid of Khufu, a.k.a. Pyramid of Cheops) (Cairo, Egypt) (estimated original height)
The Great Pyramid of Giza has an estimated original height (without loss due to erosion) of 850 shaftments. The Pyramid was the tallest structure in the world for almost 4,000 years — from its construction ca. 2551 BCE until it was overtaken by the Lincoln Cathedral in Lincoln, England, built in the year 1300.
