Click the picture. It’s Florida. Now zoom all the way in. This is a plane that crashed 26 years ago.

    that can’t possibly be true.
    everything seems fake.

    Well, google map images tend to be a couple of years old, so no guarantees that the plane is still there.

    Could the plain have sat there for a long time? Of course it is — crap lays around uninhabited areas all the time. This is where google maps is disorienting; in two ways: sense of perspective, and sense of scale.

    Perspective: The same reality is very different when you’re experiencing it from street level vs. seeing it from straight above at essentially infinite distance.

    Scale: That lake is dwarfed by Okeechobee, but it’s still huge — much bigger then any lake near Miami. Nobody owns the water, and whoever owns the land around it doesn’t actually see the plane — it’s almost a quarter mile from the plane to the closest podunk dirt road. Strange but true.

    Major CM kudos to anyone who gets a photo of the plane from the ground. Caution: it may be gone, and might be a wasted trip.

    most likely a drug plane? the Bahamas are full of them.
