This is Aviano air base. Zoom out one level and the base is there in lo res. Zoom in and it i a patchwork of fields photoshopped over the air base.

I find it interesting that things that are censored on the Bing maps are almost always visible on the Google maps. Like you said, that is an impressive, if rather obvious, job of concealment.

The base is still being built in the Google image. The Bing image is likely from before it was built not photoshopped. The low res bing image is most likely take more recently than the high res you get when you zoom in.

i'm pretty sure it is photoshopped, since on the lower left side you can still see a strip of landing lights in the field right next to the street. those look pretty much the same on google earth.
futile effort to camouflage a base like this, as if that was the only source for aerial imagery.

Note it no longer appears photoshopped.
