The six helicopters are Iranian navy SH-3 Seakings. The hovercraft are of UK origine, also operated by the Iranian navy for amphibious assault. In both cases it is likelyt that not all of what you see is air/sea worthy due to spares shortages.

Have a look around the planet and when you stop on something it will give its exact coordinates! Have a play around its great fun and a uselull tool. Especially street directions, you can actually see what building your going to before you get there!

If you want to see the places the coordinates showing that people are putting on here, just simply type the coordinates on the search box that says FLY TO.

Thanks Planeman,

(Its funny, even when you type that it feels like youre thanking a superhero for saving your life in a film
)

Looking forward to inputting those co-ordinates.

Cheers

excellent stuff! I agree, Tornados. Probably British but could be German, Saudi or Italian.

For more out of place aircraft, 14 55 53.82 N 102 04 50.41 E seems to be in the middle of an international exercise.

THis is an aircraft carrier located in Jacksonville, Fl.

The resolution is pretty amazing even with the free version of Google Earth. IS the resoultion any better with Google earth plus?

Well it is where the U.S. Air Force uses the base for Red Flag exercises with foreign allies.

Yep!

edit: almost forgot about this one: smallest plane I've found yet.

Well it ain't unusual to see such aircraft there anyways, after all it is where the USAF practice Red Flag exercises with foreign allies.

Looks interesting.


You know what... it seems to dawn on me how massive our forces really are when looking at our forces array all around the world through Google Earth. Its like saying we can't destroy America's military forces since they all spread out, instead of keeping all the eggs in one basket as one would say.

The best places to find these are by first searching for airports. For example type "Newark Airport" into the search area.

Finding the flying planes is difficult, but usually if you start clicking away from the direction the runways go you will see planes in the air on their approaches.

Planes coming in for landings are uaually spaced at least a mile apart so it takes a lot of clicking, but with patience you will find the planes.

It's too bad there's no attachment option on these forums, otherwise we could all post pics of what we're seeing. It would make this thread more interesting.

This is something interesting I happened to stumble upon on my last trip to Richmond, Va. This is an underground structure that has several sets of steps leading 30' up to the 10’ high electric fence, there is a 3' gravel path around the entire top of the mound, and when you look through the fence (carefully might I add, as there were things like dead squirrels around the fence), there is an obvious roof line with a gravel covering, and several vents all the way around. The roof is raised approximately 2’ from the top of the mound. Now the weird thing is that about every 30 yards on the top of the fence are armored security cameras, they don’t appear to move, but are there none the less. There are no visible entrances to the mound with the exception of a fountain built into the north end of the mound, seen in the picture as a small area of trees. On one side of this fountain, there is a door that looks like it’s made of cement, same as the fountain, with a keypad next to it. I sat around for about an hour watching this door and the mound to see if there was any action, but nothing happened. As I was looking around at this mound, several joggers in the area said that I should not go up the steps anymore, and the police usually show up to see what you’re doing. Kind of freaky that about 20 min later 2 Richmond Police cruisers came around the corner and parked as me and my buddy walked back to his truck. When we pulled away, they followed us all the way to the interstate. Here the coords:

37 32 43.73 N 77 28 45.82 W

It's also worth mentioning that there is a 2 story tall brick building with no windows and a huge generator and huge power transformer next to the mound across the street to the east of the mound with the same style of electric fence, but this fence has a sign that says, NO TRESPASSING PROPERTY OF THE CITY OF RICHMOND. This is hidden by a grove of trees in the Google Earth. Will post picture that I took of the steps with my cell phone to give you an idea of just how steep they are.

Here is the picture that Shows my buddy standing on the steps leading to the top of the mound. face blacked out for obvious reasons.

Pic of the mound in Richmond, Va.

Steps are pretty steep, go up for about 30' to the fenceline.
