Where Is This Plane At?

Sat Oct 13, 2012 3:45 pm

I was looking at one of today's top photos and could not figure out the relative positions. The photo is of Malpensa MXP and shows a Lufthansa jet taxiing in the foreground. When I look at Google Earth, I cannot figure out where that jet can possibly be. I think I need a little help.

The Google Maps image is old.

If you look at Bing Maps, you will see a new taxiway extension to the south of 35L.

Phew - 'cos from the Google Earth sat image I thought he was taxiing down the road to the south of the airport!
