Photo Safari #22 - Planes on Sticks

Blog Blog

Thursday, Oct 6 2011 by

There have been a fair number of airplanes on static display posted in the last week so I’m sensing a pent up longing to post more.

This week I’m looking for airplanes on static display in Street View. No, they don’t have to be on sticks, but they do have to be on display, not just disused or in storage. Museum pieces are fine. Airplanes in a heritage park or part of a collection of planes on display at museums are fine too. Kudos for WWII era and earlier aircraft. I suspect we have many Google Maps maps with planes on static display that now have Street View imagery that has never been posted.

Post your finds to Street View – Vehicle – Military – Display for credit.

Good luck and happy hunting!

Here are a few examples:
