It's either a mistake or that 'Gulfstream' is really a U2 spy plane... Or maybe something else super secret?
Most likely a glitch though, where does the data come from? Are military aircraft usually listed? (I mean operational aircraft like your F18 and U2's and stuff, not passenger things like Learjets)
edit, apparently they cruise at a little less than half that, 51,000 feet.edit on 29/11/2010 by Now_Then because: (no reason given)
I'm also unaware of any USAF bases in Ireland
I have no idea if military aircraft are usually listed...

I think it's GoogleEarth that uses the +/- symbols....frustrating, when you're used to the more traditional notations....
We don't know the location of more than 50% of the receivers. Another problem is the NET2-network that consists of 20-40 unknown users. And the last problem is that we don't know if a receiver is down or if's just not receiving any planes for the moment. So we have no plans for such feature right now.
