MYSTERY surrounds the discovery of what appears to be an aircraft sitting on the ground in the middle of nowhere in the Simpson Desert.
An Alice Springs man discovered the "plane" yesterday, which he estimates to be about 128km southeast of the outback town.
The man, who preferred not to be named, said he had been making a routine check of the region using internet-based satellite images available on Google Earth.

While it isnt uncommon for a plane to be seen with google earth, the thing that seperates this one from the norm, is the lack of shadow and the lack of artefact. (explained in article)

It could even be an old WWII plane uncovered by a sand storm. The longer time passes the more time for it to get buried by the sands.
