Our Community Editor Stuart has been busy pulling together a list of aviation oddities captured by Google Maps’ satellite imagery.
Listing various interesting sights included aircraft parts on a train heading for Boeing’s Everett factory, a mysterious downed aircraft in the Mojave Desert and what seems to be an F-117 Stealth Fighter in a swimming pool.
It’d be great to expand this list so if you have a suggestion for our collection, or if you want to talk about some of our finds, then have your say in our Google maps area on AirSpace.
There’s got to be countless examples out there. For example Max Kingsley-Jones (Flight International’s Deputy Editor) told me there’s supposed to be a crashed Boeing 707 left to rust somewhere on the banks of the River Nile. I’ve got to admit I gave up looking after a while (it is the longest river in the world after all), but let us know if you have more luck and we’ll add it to the list.
