It's about one-one-hundredth as tall as Nelson's Column.
In other words, 445.26 milimeters is 0.008622 times the height of Nelson's Column, and the height of Nelson's Column is 116 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom) (from pedestal first step to tip of statue's hat)
Nelson's Column measures 51,640 milimeters from the first step of the pedestal's base to the top of the statue's hat. While the London tower is the tallest, there are at least eight other monuments to Admiral Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, 1st Duke of Bronté throughout England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and Barbados.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as The Leaning Tower of Pisa.
In other words, 445.26 milimeters is 0.00789 times the height of The Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the height of The Leaning Tower of Pisa is 127 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 56,400 milimeters 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-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as The Cinderella Castle.
In other words, 445.26 milimeters is 0.00773 times the height of The Cinderella Castle, and the height of The Cinderella Castle is 129 times that amount.
(Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World, Lake Buena Vista and Bay Lake, Florida)
Walt Disney World's Cinderella Castle is 57,600 milimeters 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-one-hundred-fiftieth as long as The Wingspan of a 747.
In other words, the length of The Wingspan of a 747 is 154 times 445.26 milimeters.
(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 68,500 milimeters. Fully loaded, the 747 can travel 8,290,000,000 milimeters before refueling.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree).
In other words, the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 170 times 445.26 milimeters.
(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 76,000 milimeters. 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-two-hundredth as tall as The Statue of Liberty.
In other words, 445.26 milimeters is 0.004788 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 208.9 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 92,990 milimeters 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-two-hundredth as tall as Big Ben.
In other words, 445.26 milimeters is 0.0046 times the height of Big Ben, and the height of Big Ben is 220 times that amount.
(officially the clock tower of Palace of Westminster, a.k.a. Houses of Parliament) (London, England)
