    Default Cars Can Fly? Google Earth says 'Yes'

    Flying Car Captured on Google Earth
    1/23/06 | Joey O'Donnell


    Recently, on Google’s satellite photo transmitter “Google Earth,” in the Australian city of Perth, a flying car was caught on camera— levitating. How in the world is that possible? To date, not much is known about the topic, but here’s some information that was released about it.


    According to the Channel Register’s (a European online news source) Oz photo interpretation bureau, the vehicle in question, described by Clinton Bird—a professor of architecture and abstract identification at the University of Auckland, is at an altitude of three or four meters and doing about 80 knots. That data rules out rocket powered turbofan outrigger engines, favored by the Moller Corporation (a corporation devoted to the development of flying, turbofan powered cars).


    This leaves just one possible explanation: Australians have developed a gravity-busting engine— by putting a huge rotating ring above a super conducting coil and pumping enough electric current through the coil, resulting in a large magnetic field that will "reduce the gravitational pull on the ring to the point where it floats free". This anti-grav engine, bolted onto a second-hand Holden, is seen here in the split second before their X-Motor made the trans-dimensional leap to hyper light speed.

    S'what it looks like to me. Can't really tell what it is.

    It kinda looks like the flying car from Harry Potter.

    I always suspected Goo of having a flying car, or a dune buggy.

    That was pretty neat. BTW, it's nice to see that google earth supports mac now.

    Any idea what the story is behind that? Kinda odd to have a big ass wwII plane spread across an intersection.

    Just a guess, but there seems to be some kind of event going on at the airfield to the northwest. The aircraft shelters make it look like an old military base, and there are cars parked all over the place (on the runway, too). There's also an airfield to the ENE.

    It's a Lancaster bomber. As far as I know, there are only two left in flying condition. I was lucky enough to see one of them at Oshkosh back in the early 1990s, flying in formation with a B-24 and B-17. That was a real treat!

    I could (and sometimes do) sit for hours looking for shit on Google Maps. Not a very productive way to spend the day, but it's just so cool (to me!). I'm actually surprised I don't encounter aircraft more often.

    Judging by Mike's info, and using the info here, I'm guessing it could be this one:
