It is often difficult to determine exactly when a google earth picture was taken, but you can find out the date, the time of day is often diffiucult.
But you can see military assets in a lot of places.
If you pull up Guam, you can see B-1s, B-2s, C-17s, F/A-18s and KC-135s on Anderson AFB. If you pull up Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire you can see USN LA class SSNs and a Ohio class SSBN being refit there., go across town to Pease ANGB and you see KC-135s there.
I found the USS Ronald Reagan CVN and her task force at sea in the Pacific Ocean once.
You can also see military aircraft and ships in Iran, China, Russia, and just about every other country.

Thanks for that Top Boom, Google Earth is not one of my "to go" places on the web but gave it a little drive yesterday.
But I guess I am more focused on the assets themselves at Avalon in Australia and the occassion of the visit. I dod remember reading an article in the magazine Australian Aviation of one of the journo's getting a spin in the Super Hornet. I thought that these would be the US planes associated with that story and indeed the displays for the Australian Airshow in Jan 09.
I thank you for your response and welcome any others.
