Default Amazing!

That is really cool... What are the odds that you are on the the taxiway at the exact second that the google folks snap your picture...very cool. If I zoom in enough, I can see your RV grin Just curious....but how did you know you were in the shot - did you recognize it, or did someone else from the airport tell you??

One of my CFIs called me up...

This could be an interesting thread...it's not as though we're not a group given to bragging, one-upsmanship and other lies...

heh. I'm gonna win this...

How about the dog and my boy with his tractor?

I remember him running inside and telling me that "the weirdest car just went by".

Default Mind blown

Okay how do you post a pic of google maps?

I was excited because my dads plane is in google earth TWICE! Once on the taxiway at our home airport, and once at OSH. Well, I cant get a shot off that . So out of curiosity I checked google maps... and there is another one.

Either my dad is really lucky or big brother is nervous

It's really sad when my 19 year old son has to ask his 49 year old dad how to do something on the computer! My plane is in front of my buddy's hangar - we were de-briefing a Blackjack Squadron flight when this was taken.
