Well, Google finally updated the maps for Dubai and managed to capture an EK A380 on departure.

Have a look at 25⁰14'46.39"N 55⁰22'49.57"E

There is good size comparison to a 77W and a 744.

What about the EK A380 replica at London Heathrow's motorway entrance? Is it visible from outerspace too Big grin?

Any chance, and this is a big big if, these are intentional shots. Almost impossible to stage, but maybe not to fake, a sort of viral marketing.......planes so big you can see our name on them from space? Okay, flame me down, any since it is not Sir Richard's airline, maybe I am full of it.

Except that many (not all) Google Earth photos are taken from regular aircraft. Since, in this hypothetical example, Google would have to let the UAE government know in advance that an overflight would occur, I'm sure it'd be easy enough to arrange that the flight occur at a certain time.

I said "many," not "most." Please suggest your post for deletion.

Interesting. But while I was cruising around the area, I had a look at Sharjah, about five minutes up the road. Anyone else here think this could be an interesting runway on which to land??

Unfortunately, the link seems to want to dump you in Dubai every time, but please persist and if you do end up at DXB, drag the map to the north-east.

Fantastic point, I guess they should have leveled the sand dunes before moving forward.  Big grin

Off the thread's topic, the plane turning off at SHJ, is that a Lufthansa Cargo or an Eva Air Cargo? I vote Lufthansa, but the logo is not convincing.

What do you recon?

there are several ghost planes dotted around dubai airport

also do i assume the small bit of runway just off the 311 road at Jebel Ali is the new super airport. looks like the desert has taken over the runway.

Actually that was made that way for the blitzed UA pilots comming in from LHR so the swerving back and forth would result in a perfect landing.
