The folks at Google Sightseeing do an excellent job of finding interesting items on Google Earth that many of us have overlooked. A recent article from Kyle Kusch is a great example of that, as he finds buildings around the world with false facades.
The items in his list typically look like real buildings, but are often concealing empty alleys or other eyesores, or are completely fake (such as the fake airplane crash seen below and fake a McDonald’s restaurant that he highlighted).
Many of the examples rely on Street View to appreciate them, but some are seen clearly from above as well. You can check out his full article to see all of them, or grab this KML file to view them all in Google Earth.
Nice work, Kyle!
