Can anyone identify this on Google earth

#1
type in coordinates as shown

38 13 36.51 N 112 17 56.74 W

i know its a missile but what kind and why would it be flying over the USA
 
#2
Tomahawk? Stubby wings set quite far back along the body look familiar.

Probably on a test flight, given the locstat. IIRC there are Airforce test facilities in that neck of the woods.

I looks like a plane with dark coloured wings to me. Look beyond the stubby bits. Looks like extended wings, but dark in colour, so not too different from the earth colour. Leer jet?

Oddly enough that’s exactly what it says in the text on the web site (nobber)

I have got to concur that at 1st glance it does look like a cruise missile, on closer inspection you can indeed see the dark painted wings and the twin vapour trail.

Jet liner. Myth busted :)

HMV have you just posted your house?? 8O
Unfortunately I don't live in a Lancaster bomber! :(

But it would be cool if I did. 8)
The bomber dont show up on my google earth :?
I remember seeing a thread about a Lancaster over Stukeley meadows a year or so back. (Father in law lives a couple of miles away at Alconbury.)

1. ISTR the whole "Lancaster spotted on Google Earth" was discussed long and hard on the internet and the consensus was it was faked.

2. Google Earth update their maps periodically: looks like this is so in this case.

Type in Middle Wallop and if you zoom into the airfield you can see Lynx, Apache and various other aircraft dotted about on the airfield :)

My old home :)

I didn't read it. Just clicked on the picture to make it bigger. My mistake.
