The latest revision of google earth has a history "button" which opens a slider. The slider can be used to change the date of the image. Using this slider, you can see changes in imagery.

This page has a few changes I noted on the Tonopah Test Range. I have some changes elsewhere around the range that I will add later.

Indian Springs 1999

N36 34 55.98 w115 40 44.75

Using the "history" button, I pulled this old image of Indian Springs (KINS). You can see a plane that has a wingspan of about 100ft. There are not too many planes that wide. I pasted an outline of a Global Hawk on the image for comparison. It looks like a good match. A U2 has the similar wing span, but the wings are "fatter".

The image is dated 9/5/1999. The Global Hawk first flew 2/28/1998, so it hadn't been flying for long before appearing at KINS.

Interesting thanks for posting that. I'll have to check a couple of areas I've been interested in as well.

I'll eventually add this to my google earth history page, but here are some interesting photos of the area centered at
N 37 42 50.27 w116 7 3.94
This area is just over the border near the Cedar Pipeline Ranch.

Mar 3, 2003

Mar 21, 2003

May 7, 2007

I happened to be their in May 2003, though I didn't log the exact date. You can see the dirt haulers taking dirt from a road that would have access to these area on google earth and moving it to where the Keno airstrip was being built.

I thought this was a lot of work at the time since the areas are a few miles apart. But my thinking at the time was some soils expert reviewed historical data from samples in the area and thought this spot in the hills had the best soil for use in making the runway. Now I'm not so sure. The round spot in the first photo is pretty odd.

Here is another facility that popped up using the history button. It looks like a pad and not a building, since there is no shadow. The area in question is in the upper left corner of the image.

N37 14 37.49 w114 58 51.33

new facility 05211994

new facility 10122006

I'm curious as to how accurate this is.

Have a look at these coordinates:

33°19'35.23" N 44°17'04.93" E

You'll see a car on fire in Iraq.

Now load up the history slider and look at January 6 2005, car is gone.

Now look at September 7 2004, car is back there!

I have to agree that one is messed up, but I haven't found this to be the case in general.

Palmdale (Plant 42) has the same issues with history.
