A fun Google maps discovery

I was looking up directions to a swing dancing venue in Dallas and I decided to study the map around my house to get a better feel for the lay of the land. I’m getting a good sense of the area and I am starting to get around without relying on GPS too much. So there weren’t too many surprises for me on the map until I noticed what appeared to be an airplane in a nearby lake. When I zoomed in on it I found this gem.

Here’s the Google map coordinates. It’s kind of cool to see it in context. Eventually the image will get replaced I’m sure.

It makes me wonder how many other planes you could find if you started looking for them on maps near airports. Just one more way that the internet can make hours disappear.
