I checked the Terraserver picture of the bone yard. The pictures are from different times. The Terraserver satellite photo is from 1992. There were LOTS more planes there then.

Check-out the number of B-52's that have disappeared in the years since.

It looks like the Terraserver picture gives you about one click more magnification at the expense of being black&white (and quite a bit older).

Too bad it doesn't work for Australia? I checked for my house in Hawaii too and it couldn't get a close up view of that either? Anyway, it is a neat thing to have if you want to have a close up view of where you live.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Aircraft in flight captured in Satellite photos
I stumbled across an airplane in flight in one of these satellite photos and was wondering if they are common so I started looking for more. As it turns out they seem to be relatively common if you look in "the usual places".

The first one I found was approaching Hillsboro OR from the SE over a school yard.

Others I found by checking the usual flyways around here:
Approaching SJO from the SE over 280 & Almaden Blvd.
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=590+S...42572&t=k&hl=en

Approaching SJO from the SE over the Santa Clara Fair Grounds at Tully & Monterey Rd.
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=2500+...10643&t=k&hl=en

Approaching SFO from the SE over the SF Bay (notice aircraft shadow north-east)
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=here&...21286&t=k&hl=en

Approaching OAK from the SE over the SF Bay

If you find one, please post it here. I'd like to see just how common these candid pictures really are. What I'd really like to see is a HELICOPTER in one of these pictures, but they are probably too small to see.

I'd be curious to see if anyone can find one at cruising altitude and see what it looks like
