    Click this link to google earth and then look closely at Russell Square. Zoom in and look again. Ask yourself what you would have thought had you been in the park when this picture was taken. If wondering where it might be heading or rather where it should be, zoom out and look to your left about 10 plus miles past Hounslow and there it is.

    I don't get it, why is the plane there? And where's the tail?

    You're gonna need to be a little more specific.

    Wkmacs link opens up "Google Maps". You need to use "Google Earth". Search Russell Square, London, UK.

    So, wkmac not only has long boring postings, but almost impossible links to reach now, too ?

    Actually make sure you are clicked on Satellite View and not map. The link works everytime for me but my default setting may be to the satellite viewing.

    To your original question in post #2, not sure why the plane is there or is that low (appears to be) but it is a remarkable shot. I guesstimated Heathrow is about 10 plus miles away and the aircraft is headed in the direction so maybe they were waving to someone in the park!
