Plane-shaped Pools in Google Earth

Plane Pool in Google EarthA popular web site for showing off unique things you can find in Google Earth and Maps is GoogleSightseeing.com. Developed by brothers Alex and James Turbull, GoogleSightseeing is a blog which highlights and describes the unique things they find or things suggested by their readers. In the past, they have found pools people have built in interesting shapes like guitars and hearts. A couple of days ago they did one showing pools in the shape of planes. Being an aviator myself, I couldn’t resist sharing this one. You can see the four locations they found in this Google Earth file . Open the “plane-shaped-pools” folder and double click on each placemark to be flown to each location. Click on the story for more details.

    Back in the early 60’s, as a tribute to the space program, my father (ex-Marine spy pilot) built an office building in the 2D cross-sectioned shape of a Gemini capsule. I’m not sure it’s still around though. I’ll look.
