Do you see what I see?

Default Do you see what I see?

I was looking at various R/C fields using MapQuest Aerial Photographs and decided to look at the field near my birthplace, Seaford, Long Island. The field is Cedar Creek Park and when I was living there, I used to fish off the banks of the canal that got filled in to make the field.

Anyway, here's the photo I got. If you look in the lower right, do you see a white winged biplane making an approach turn to the NW-SE runway? Not too much in the way of being clear, but it sure looks like one to me.

BTW, this is a Satellite Photo, not one from a Cessna at 5000 feet!

And "NO", I didn't photo retouch it into the original photo. You can look for yourself at MapQuest.

That must be a 1/2 scale bipe, judging by the size of the cars.. or a defect in the image.

I have to agree with FLYBOY, either a speck or some type of marking on the photo. But its a cool picture...

I make it out to be an enlarged plan (48%) Balsa USA Super Stearman. Looks like Coverite fabric judging by the weave spacing, and those cowl decals are a dead give-away on the engine type-(Briggs and Stratton).

Default Is This what you're talking about?

If this is it, I can't make out a bi-wing at all. How come it's brighter than everything else in the picture?
