I have some doubts that this is E6142 (see Russ site - there are pictures of both to the right)
The difference is (and it is proved by sattelite views) E6150 has round building and E6142 - square. And probably link to panoramio for Perim High at Russ site is also incorrect. What do you think, Hans?

Changed it, you're right.
Never was there and didn't miss anything i believe.
