From time to time I take a pleasure in locating things on Google Earth. Be it transient happenings like an aircraft in flight (Example: 47 33’ 57.00" North / 8 25’ 28.23" East) or things belonging to me (My - now decommissioned - aircraft at 46 54’ 53.56" North / 7 29’ 54.03" East).
Is there anyone who found his car or even himself or other interesting things on GE? I am not talking about street view here, just satellite pics.
Oh we get low altitude stuff as well, but they are usually gone by the
time you hear them, plus lots of trees here.
I’ve see the space shuttle fly over about 90 miles north, one of the
last flights flew directly overhead when it was landing, sonic boom was
impressive! Also seen a B2 stealth bomber fly over refueling or tailing
a commercial airliner wasn’t sure
i knew it had one, but not two nor it was a world record holder…cool!
After a bit of research I found: There were even 3 airstrips on Envelade many years ago: Endelave WEST, Endelave SOUTH and Endelave EAST. There are still flight simulator sceneries showing all three. But, unfortunately, Endelave WEST is the only one to remain. Well, it was a bit of a mess, having 3 grass strips in different directions with overlapping traffic patterns.
