Funny Picture Of At Schiphol (google Earth)

Thu May 10, 2007 10:16 pm

Hay ,

I was looking around in Google Earth and I saw this:

Polderbaan arrival


=>arrival on the Polderbaan at Schiphol, AMS


Do you have an idea about the company ? I know it is a 747-....
I know that this program has other bizarre/funny pics of airliners, but this one pops out , a plane with half a wing.

what are your thoughts, or do you have an other airliner "mishap"

Might be the "joint" between pictures taken from two different satellite passages. Obviouly, after one revolution around the earth, the plane has landed ...
... just a guess!

Yes - because notice that the shadow of the "missing" wing is intact.

Perhaps the system pastes pics together from the same pass, but they are seconds or minutes apart?

I was looking around Boston when I thought I saw a DC-3. Zooming in a bit gave me this:

Most of the high quality imagery on Google Earth is taken by aircraft, not satellites. They take lots of smaller pictures, and then someone puts them all together like a puzzle. That's how the above shots happen.

Take a look at the LH 744 departing FRA to the east as a better illustration of this many-pictures technique.

So, the new CIA stealth technology has been implemented on airliners. We have proof.

Have a look at Kansai airport in Osaka Japan. Part of one runway is still under construction. There is even a departing 747.

Thats a good guess,

also has it right, the satellite photographs by "swiping" a band of terrain (n) miles wide, the planes in Schipol and Boston, where near the limit of the band, and when the next "swipe" pass happened, the planes were no more at same possition. So in the next "swipe" the parts of those planes that were at the new band just seems to disapear.
