Default Google Earth fun


You can check this out using Google Earth, or simply Google maps.

Enter "n 33.646805 w 84.421473" in either search bar, or for you
whizzes out there, runway 8R at Atlanta Hartsfield, about halfway along it.
Got the plane?

Now track East (right). And keep going.

I've got at least five planes in far-too-close spacing, and they're
identical. I'm pretty sure the same plane was caught at least five times as
the satellite tracked east while taking pics. What do you think?

And here I was frustrated that I couldn't locate a plane in the air.
Should've known Atlanta (or O'Hare) wouldn't let me down...

If you take a look at Seminole Lake airport you will see a glider in the
trafic pattern near the north end of the runway. (28 24' 36.14" N, 81 50'
14.42 W)

It could be.. But if you go left to the beginning of the runway, you
see four more of the same plane waiting to get on the runway. There
are also 5 or 6 parked at the terminal area to the south.

They look like MD-90's and they sure seem popular in those parts
