It looks like the two planes in my post are the same plane. Do you think yours is the same, too?

And I would've expected shadows to appear somewhere...

I'm pretty sure mine is the same LH 747 three times, just off the end of 07L at FRA. You can see the shadows as well.

Upon closer inspection, yours is an UA 787 twice. :)

I was going to show my favourite one from London, but seems they've updated the satellite images recently.

Oh, I just noticed the shadow about 300 m to the west of the top plane.

A mate of mine who lives close by LHR is giving it a closer look, because I'm not that familiar with it. He's very excited. ;)

Very interesting. I love going through airport maps as well.

I always grab them at airport and study them, which makes me look like I'm a lot tourist, but I don't really care. ;)

Flying to four airports I've never been to in the next five weeks – exciting!

Indeed. It's come to the point where I plan my trips to take me to airports I haven't been to yet. That's why I've been checking Google and other maps. My friends think I'm a dork, but what do they know. :D

Eight days and counting (PER–DXB–LHR–ZAG–LIS–ZAG–VIE–LHR–DXB–PER). :mrgreen:

Lots of my friends think I'm a dork. Thankfully the gf only thinks I'm a little bit of a dork ;)

And on a similar vein..........

Satelliteimages of airports reveal complexity of their 'bones, muscles and nerves'

Nice article, and interesting little bit of info at the bottom of the linked item:

O. R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg (pictured) is one of the darkest images in O'Neill's collection. It is also the only one to show clouds above the runways. The airport is one of the few in the world that has non-stop flights to six inhabited continents, others include Dubai International Airport, Abu Dhabi International Airport and Doha International Airport
