Lately I've been looking a military bases and airports around the world on google maps ever since i saw a video that showed a base outside of
jacksonville florida that had nearly every inch of runway covered with white UN vehicles. Now if you look at that base (Green Cove Springs) it looks
pretty empty, no vehicles...but you can see the blotches left after having the vehicles sit for so long. The base is right on a port and there are
rail lines that go into the base which is most likely how the vehicles were moved in and out. Ok, thats what peaked my interest in trolling google
maps, so today i was looking at Missouri and as i zoomed in on Richard-Gebaur AFB i noticed something odd. When looking straight down at the base
zoomed in about halfway on the scale you can see typical runways crossing eachother, but as soon as you zoom in one step further everything in the
frame changes. It changes from an airstrip to what looks like a rail yard when you zoom in, but it's not just the base, even some of the surrounding
area changes...buildings and properties that weren't there before all of a sudden appear, and others disappear. Could it be evidence of the maps being
altered to keep prying eyes from accidentaly seeing something they shouldnt? I looked at the bottom of the map and they both said 2012, but the far
out zoom that shows the base is from TerraMetrics and the close up is DigitalGlobe, GeoEye, USGS, and USDA map data...seems odd.
Here's the coordinates, let me know what you think.
