Re: Frankfurt airport: what happened to it on Google Maps?

Google Earth sometimes edits out aircraft, cars, ships, and other objects that aren't always in the same location. Ruins the point of satellite imagery if some of the imagery is edited out in my opinion. Another airport with no aircraft is Everett Paine Field in Washington, USA. Never thought that t...

Might be a silly question, but why is the aircraft sitting at the end of the runway instead of somewhere else? Doesn't that mean other aircraft can't use that runway? Or is it not actually on the runway like the stream says?

Edit: Nevermind, I see it's not on the runway.
