Has Google Earth captured any crash sites soon after the event?
They have images of New York and the Pentagon on Sept 12. Are there any others?

The site of the crash of American 587 is marked on Google Maps. The houses near that label suffered some fire damage but were reoccupied. The bulk of the plane landed on two or three houses across the street from those homes, which is now the vacant land to the upper right of the label. These houses are where the victims on the ground died. To my knowledge the lots remain empty.

I also vaguely remember one of the early shots of JFK showed a plane that had overrun one of the runways and into the arrestor bed, but it seems they have updated the photos.

There's one on Cyprus, easily visible at that: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=35.168403,33.267548&z=18&t=h&hl=en-GB.

I believe that's the CSA Tu-104 that crash-landed at Nicosia in 1973:

(though the photo description says otherwise, I've checked the location in GE and haven't found anything there... plus a photo comment puts it round about the spot in the Google Maps link)



No plane, no gain.

It's in the June 29, 2003 imagery. You can access it via the "Historical Imagery" button on the toolbar (looks like a clock).
