From what I can tell the planes in the airport look alot different than the V shaped object in the picture. I'm not saying that it's not a plane. I
would just like to see a picture of a plane that's V shaped and looks the same as the object.
I dont see the slight distortion that you're describing either it looks normal to me.
Dam, I dont think that is a hanglider. Are these pics IR or just monochrome? If IR - its generating quite a bit of heat which isn't dispersing to
form a trail (as you would see with a jets exhaust). If just monochrome - if possible check any shadows versus objects to see where the light source
is coming from (IE sun) and if the 'hanglider' is reflecting light directly at the camera (but then wouldnt there be some form of lens flare if this
light is that bright to reflect back to orbit?). Just some thoughts.
The shape is not very well defined, and although it looks more like a glider than anything else, its very shiny. Could just be a big reflection of
light on a plane, but then again, its a V shape.
Or, it looks like a poor photoshop, but i doubt anything like that would be on google maps.
I don't think hang-gliders would be allowed to fly so close to a large airport.
They are also generally a delta wing, not a V like that. It's very odd, you can see the objects on the ground underneath clearly so the fuselage
isn't just blurred out by movement, it looks like it's just a flying V.
Looking at it in Google Earth, which allows you to zoom in to ground level, with distortion, since it uses the same photos that Google maps does, it
looks like something highly reflective that's flaring the image into that shape. If you check it in Earth you can see it's not symetrical and has
jagged edges. Also right at the apex you can see something reflecting sunlight.
If this is a hangglider, then where's the "pilot"? I see no person hanging beneath it, no legs that come out in the back. Besides; the altitude
from where these pics are taken will "distort" perspective, and that object is faaaaar up in the air. At least for being a hangglider. Any other
