This is my contribution to the very nice AZTraveller's collection: some aicrafts over italian skies.
Hope you enjoy.
|Re: GE members Satellite captured Planes in flight||AZTraveller||8/15/05 2:08 PM|
Great job. Thanks I will add these and put out an update shortly. I did not check if all of the sightings had been posted in the forum. Out of four I checked three I did not find and the fourth had been posted. I know I do not have all that have been posted. I had a larger collection originally but I had a GE crash.
Keep hunting there must be lots more out there

|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||wlyster||8/20/05 6:36 PM|
I have no idea if this is an aerial photo or a satellite photo. Either way it's a private jet in flight. It appears that it may have recently left Dulles due to it's proximity. Aside from the fact it is flying in the direction of earth's rotation and based on the SRB's under the wings - I would've guessed it was trying to reach orbital alignment!
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||AZTraveller||8/20/05 8:08 PM|
Dodge69 Hi- and welcome to GE. Your find is actually an aerial photograph and not a satellite image I will include it in my update on August 21st 2005 of planes in flight Aerial photographs
|Re: ACFT en vol, Bordeaux , France||AZTraveller||8/20/05 8:11 PM|
bubulle welcome to GE. That is a rare find most airborne aircraft are at much lower altitudes and near airports.
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||AZTraveller||8/20/05 8:20 PM|
jennwill99 welcome to GE. A good find this is an aerial photograph. Satellite captured images of aircraft always have a second exposure ahead of the direction of travel at a lower resolution in blue.
|Re: GE members Satellite captured Planes in flight||Wabbit||8/20/05 10:57 PM|
"I had a larger collection originally but I had a GE crash."And no Black Box was found?
AZTraveller, Great Job! When I posted the one off Anderson Island I asked if anyone ever put all planes found into one folder. Do you ever sleep?!!
I added a parked sea plane on the shore of Lake Tahoe for you.
Anyway, like I was sayin', wabbit is the fruit of the land. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, wabbit-kabobs, wabbit creole, wabbit gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple wabbit, lemon wabbit, coconut wabbit, pepper wabbit, wabbit soup, wabbit stew, wabbit salad, wabbit and potatoes, wabbit burger, wabbit sandwich. That- that's about it.

Filipe_Cascao welcome to GE. A good find. This aircraft at 108 ft wing span and a length of 153 ft could be a Boeing 727-200 if what looks like a third engine in the tail is an engine. I will include it in the next update.

|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||pfly||9/13/05 4:25 PM|
Not sure if this one has been found yet.
A pretty clear example of the satellite double exposure artifact. Interesting how the plane is white where the exposures overlap, gray/tan on the panchromatic image, and with trailing red streaks on the blue multispectral image.
Just read more than I could quite understand on satellite scanning tech, "time delay integration", "pan sharpening", and so on. Pretty amazing, and complex..
|Remote sensing details||seer||9/13/05 4:50 PM|
If you read enough to find those tems, look a little further for orthorectification and you will have just about the full glossary of the behind the scenes work in Google Earth's data production process for images. Of course, there is also work in the terrain, data layers, and 3D buildings processes as well. The goal, though, is that all of this is invisible to end-users who just type in an address and enjoy the fact that it all works as expected. ;-)
Be seeing you, Seer
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||AZTraveller||9/13/05 4:58 PM|
pfly you are correct an unposted Airbus A300-600 to add to the collection.
Most of the technical data about satellites make is not unfortunately written in a manner that is easily understood. It often sounds more complex than it really is.
In the old days of black and white photography it was a Manufacturer goal to make a film that was equally sensitive to all colors. This goal was never really achieved. Electronic imaging gets closer because any imbalance in sensitivities can be digitally processed out. A panchromatic image would be the ideal black to white image supporting all of the subtleties of a true gray scale. In the satellite image reconstruction, which assumes a stationary image, white is equivalent to equal amounts of red, green and blue. When you superimpose the displaced image the color and black and white image processing is making wrong assumptions about both the foregound and background actual colors.
|Re: Remote sensing details||pfly||9/13/05 5:15 PM|
Ack, don't say orthorectification! :-) The org where I work is just now working with a vendor to get a new set of orthos, this time using LIDAR data in the post-processing. Between difficulties with the LIDAR and delays in flying due to clouds, it is all several months behind schedule. For a short while when I first began here I was doing quality control on incoming orthos. Thankfully, now I just get to watch the trainwreck from a distance.
The details of satellite-made imagery are pretty new to me. I'm used to seeing airplane/film errors.. even things like bits of lint on the film. Now I have to learn a whole new set of ways for things to go wrong!
As an application, Google Earth keep surprising me in how well it works; but sometimes what seems really novel is the global community of people talking about geography and remote sensing. After years of hearing about the sad state of geographic education, who knew all it takes is a fun tool and a way for people to talk to each other?
|Re: Fokker 100 over Italy||bebop||9/17/05 8:28 AM|
Thanks to database update, I found a Fokker 100 likely just leaving Palermo LICJ-PMO from rnwy 20. This airport is not really loved by some pilots because of not easy manoeuvres to take off/land, windshear and the presence of the (too) close Pecoraro Mountain (910 meters high).
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||Clorius||9/17/05 9:55 AM|
Here's one i found while looking at the new hi-res images of Mumbai, India.
I think it's a 747.
Edit: This one has been added to the "Satellite captured Planes in flight" database, so i've removed my placemark.
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||Clorius||9/17/05 10:54 AM|
Here's another one this time over Fukuoka, Japan.
Could be a MD-80.
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||AZTraveller||9/17/05 10:56 AM|
Clorius welcome to GE. A good find . Were you plane spotting or boat spotting when you found this? You are correct I believe it is a Boeing 747 - 200. I will include it in the next update of the forums finds Satellite captured Planes in flight
Have fun and again welcom to GE
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight - A-319||bebop||9/17/05 11:41 AM|
A friend of mine has just sent me this plane.
I think it's an A-319, following one of the most important flight path in Italy.
I'm not sure if it's a new find. Perhaps AZTraveller may confirm.
Special thanks Mr. Ombus
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||Clorius||9/17/05 11:43 AM|
Thanks for the welcome AZTraveller.
When i found the first one i was just looking around.
I've found several planes before, but this is the first that i'm pretty sure no one posted before.
Right now i'm planespotting and i've just found a 3rd one, just after takeoff from Narita, Japan, maybe a A300.
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||Munden||9/17/05 11:56 AM|
I'll put this other new one here. It's a plane flying over Fukuoka, Japan. The shadow is clearly visible too. Due to the relative lack of color blurring I suspect the plane is traveling very slowly in preparation for another sharp right turn onto final at Fukuoka Airport.
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight - A-319||AZTraveller||9/17/05 12:08 PM|
Bebop it is a Great new find but it is actually a Boeing 737-200 not an Airbus. So I am being picky. Should tell your mystery explorer to post his own finds and reveal his strategy for finding them.
It will get included in the next update of Satellite captured Planes in flight
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||Clorius||9/17/05 12:14 PM|
Here's yet another one, approaching Chiang Kai Shek International Airport, Taiwan.
Possibly a 747.
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight - A-319||bebop||9/17/05 12:55 PM|
I'm not convinced about 737: 737-200 is smaller (but measuring tool is not the Holy Bible) and its nose is sharper. A-319s fly often from Florence to Rome (and vice versa) and I'm pretty sure that this plane is just on that airway. Longer flights mostly pass over the sea.
Quote:he he he You don't know my mistery friend... I told him, but i knew he would not have posted: he's quite lazy about technical stuff... As he's an art history teacher, he's not really involved in aircrafts: he just came across the plane searching for an historical statue park in that area.
Lucky find, but very nice one.
|Planes in flight -- thanks!!||timfitz||9/17/05 1:01 PM|
What a marvellous compilation of these sightings, which seems to be a specialty of yours.
I haven't been through the whole collection yet, but do I see that some of these images have been changed since the posting? Probably a result of updating the photos. For example, "Landing Dublin Ireland" is not showing a landing plane, though it does show beautiful images of other planes in taxi and one about to take off. I noticed Dublin on the list of the recently updated images. Another example was of the "Plane Landing at LaGuardia ", where we now see a line up of planes about to take off, and on a quick look around I don't see anything landing.
I've seen a couple of your explanations of the "ghost" images, here among other places, and was intrigued with your recent calculation that a plane was flying at 550 mph. I assume this is from knowing the interval between the two shots, and that the apparent motion off the line of flight -- so that the "shadow" normally appears on the diagonal ahead of the brighter image -- has to do with the motion of the satellite as it shoots? This must make the calculation of speed a little more interesting than a simple distance over time calculation.
Your explanations are wonderfully clear, by the way, though I am torn between those explanations and the theory posted in another thread a few days ago (sorry that I can't find it to refer to) that the photographer up there in the satellite taking those double images may have been the same guy that took his wedding shots....
Thanks again, how I do go on. Maybe I should change my handle to "rambler"

Clorius you are on a roll another collection item. I believe this is a Boing 767-200. For some strange reason the right and left wings are a different shape maybe due to the CCD flare just under the west wing.
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||AZTraveller||9/19/05 8:47 AM|
Munden an interesting find. Looks like an MD80 at very low altitude; as you say the shadow is clearly visible. There is a hard to find second exposure about 14 meters ahead indicating the plane was just around 200 mph. I hope it turned soon into Fukuoka Airport

Outstanding spotting, GeoAddict.
Aircraft CDG 2 has already been collected, but the other 4 are new, so I've added them to the database of Aircraft in Flight.
I'd appreciate it if you'd remove your placemark for CDG2, since I don't have editor privileges to do it for you.
|Re: FOUR lifting-off from DFW Dallas/Ft. Worth||Frank_McVey||9/22/05 3:02 AM|
Again, great spotting GeoAddict,
Plane 1 isn't airborne yet, so I can't include that in the AIrcraft in Flight DB.
Plane 2 is airborne, but has already been collected.
Plane 3 is new and will be added to the DB.
Plane 4 has already been collected.
SInce you're obviously a keen spotter, it might be a good idea if you downloaded the latest copy of the AIrcraft in Flight files - this will help you to see where an aircraft has already been recorded. I'll be publishing an updated version in a couple of hours.
Again, could I ask you to remove any redundant placemarks.

Sorry, Death, Nobrn spotted this one a few days ago
If you're a serious plane spotter, then it's a good idea to download the latest copies of 2 files - Satellite Capture of Aircraft in flight, and Aerial Photography of AIrcraft in Flight. They're actually administered by AzTraveller, but I'm looking after them in his absence. An updated bersion of each file will be posted in the Transportation Section every day.
This will make sure that you can see all up-to-date placemarks, so you'll instantly know if your find is original.
The other neighbourly thing to do is, if you do accidentally duplicate a placemark, or post one in error, is to remove it, to avoid cluttering GE. I'd do it for you, but I don't have editor privileges.
Keep hunting, and keep posting!

|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight, Germany||Frank_McVey||9/23/05 4:38 AM|
Probably. It's much the same size and config as a Boeing 737, so it's hard to tell at this res. However, the A320 has the widest fuselage of any single-aisle aircraft, and it also has a definite "sting" at the rear of the fuselage, which the 737 lacks, so I reckon you're right.
In any event, it's original, and I've added it to the DB

|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||Frank_McVey||9/25/05 12:02 PM|
This one's already been discovered by Clorius, here.
When you're plane-spotting for aircraft in flight it can save you time and effort if you download the files "Satellite Capture of Aircraft in Flight" and "AerialPhotography of Aircraft in Flight" These are updated every day, so if you have these in "My Places" and enabled you can instantly tell if the aircraft has been seen before.
If you post a placemark which is either a duplicate or in error, the neighbourly thing to do is to remove it - this saves GE from becoming cluttered with duplicate placemarks and wrong information. I haven't got editor's privileges, otherwise I would do it for you.
Keep hunting and keep posting!

|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight, Fargo, ND||Clorius||9/29/05 1:29 PM|
Plane approaching Hector Field, Fargo, North Dakota, USA.
Actually the plane is over Minnesota.
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight, Fargo, ND||bebop||9/29/05 1:44 PM|
Another good find!
Do you think that NW DC-9 may be the right ID?
|Plane near Terrace, Canada||Clorius||9/29/05 3:22 PM|
Small plane ready to land at Terrace Airport, British Columbia, Canada.
@bebop, I think you're right, best fit is a DC-9-30.
|Plane near Pittsburgh, PA||Clorius||9/29/05 11:31 PM|
Heading for Greater Pittsburgh International Airport; Pennsylvania, USA.
|Re: Plane near Pittsburgh, PA||bebop||9/30/05 1:00 AM|
I think you found an Embraer ERJ-145.
I like this color scheme
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight, Fargo, ND||Frank_McVey||9/30/05 4:28 AM|
Another good find. Added to the DB.
|Re: Plane near Terrace, Canada||Frank_McVey||9/30/05 4:30 AM|
|Re: Plane near Pittsburgh, PA||Frank_McVey||9/30/05 4:36 AM|
Another good one added to the DB.
@Bebop (since he likes the colours)
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||apicella||9/30/05 9:45 AM|
I don't find this one on your list -- Over the S.F. Bay salt pools. Looks like a jetliner banking right after taking off from San Francisco International.
I just discovered Google Earth -- what a great service! Also a very impressive community.
Thanks for posting all of these. Zipping from one to another is great fun!
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||Frank_McVey||9/30/05 10:05 AM|
This is quite an old version of the database and has not been updated for some time.
You'll find the latest copies here - these are updated daily.
Satellite Capture of Aircraft In Flight
Aerial Photography of Aircraft In Flight
Unfortunately the aircraft you have found is in the second one.
You might like to consider removing your placemark, since we can't afford too many duplicate placemarks!
Never mind, there are plenty more out there, so keep hunting and keep posting.
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||apicella||9/30/05 10:47 AM|
Thanks for pointing me to the updated lists.
I see the previous marker posted on 9/11/05, so I guess I wasn't too awfully far behind the curve. However, there was no marker visible on the Keyhole Community BBS layer or the User Supplied Collections layer, so I assumed I was safe in posting.
Now I'm trying to learn how to unpost a marker and can't seem to find instructions for that in the faq or elsewhere. Could you point me in the right direction?
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||Frank_McVey||9/30/05 11:13 AM|
No problems - just right-click on your placemark and delete it. The go back to your post, open it and select edit, continue to the second page, check the box marked "Delete this file/placemark", then continue to send the post again, this time without the placemark.
As for not seeing it in the BBS Layer, that only gets updated every 4-6 weeks, I'm told, so you can't really rely on it for up-to-date info. Best to use the files.

AIR PLANE ON VITRY SUR SEINE FRANCE
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||Frank_McVey||9/30/05 1:20 PM|
I can't see the aircraft at your coordinates. Would you put a placemark?
It's quite easy to add placemarks. LRae's lessons are well-written and will help you, I'm sure.
Here you go!
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||FRANCOISMIGNON||9/30/05 1:34 PM|
OK I AM TRYING !
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||Frank_McVey||9/30/05 2:00 PM|
Hi, again, Francois. No need to shout, I'm just trying to be helpful!
That's a nice shot you found, but Haribotagada found it yesterday here
So having got you to put a placemark, I now have to ask you to remove it to avoid duplicates! Sorry 'bout that...
Never mind, there are hundreds more waiting to be discovered.
When you're plane-spotting for aircraft in flight it can save you time and effort if you download the files "Satellite Capture of Aircraft in Flight" and "AerialPhotography of Aircraft in Flight" These are updated every day, and posted in the Transportation forum, so if you have these in "My Places" and enabled you can instantly tell if the aircraft has been seen before. Here they are:

|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||apicella||9/30/05 7:41 PM|
Thanks for the help. I followed your instructions and it looks like my placemark is gone now (although I think someone else just marked the same place!)
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||KAIN5953||9/30/05 9:32 PM|
Not sure why I was zoomed in close enough to see this or even what I was looking for in the area but whatever the reason, I finally found one I can post. I've been holding on to this one for at least a month, just to make sure it hadn't already been posted. Anyway I think he's out buzzing the boats for fun.

Another one in Vancouver on approach for Rwy 26R
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||Frank_McVey||10/1/05 4:22 AM|
Nice original find - I've added it to the database of AIrcraft in flight.
BTW, you don't have to hang on to your finds to be sure they're original.
The only thing I would ask you to do is to edit your post slightly to give a location. This will make it possible for the search engine to find your post the next time someone else wants to check it out.
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||Frank_McVey||10/1/05 4:48 AM|
Hi, Stoof. Nice original find. I've added it to the DB of Aircraft in Flight.
|Plane at Malpensa Airport, Milan, Italy.||Clorius||10/2/05 11:27 AM|
This small plane have just taken off from Malpensa Airport, Milano, Italia.
|Re: Plane at Malpensa Airport, Milan, Italy.||Frank_McVey||10/2/05 11:32 AM|
Another good one, Clorius. I've added it to the DB and it'll appear in tomorrow's update.
|Plane approaching Chitose Airport, Japan.||Clorius||10/3/05 2:02 AM|
This plane is lining up to land at New Chitose Airport, near Sapporo, Japan.
It's one of the big real big ones, maybe a 747-400.
|Military jet near Chitose, Japan.||Clorius||10/3/05 2:31 AM|
It's quite difficult to see, but i'm sure it's some kind of military jet.
Some kind of Mitsubishi maybe?
|Re: Plane approaching Chitose Airport, Japan.||Frank_McVey||10/3/05 4:52 AM|
Yet another good one,Clorius. Added to the database.
|Re: Military jet near Chitose, Japan.||Frank_McVey||10/3/05 4:57 AM|
Certainly a military fast jet, Clorius, but the camo's too good to ident it!
|Re: Satellite captured Planes in flight||ironsman||11/11/05 12:42 PM|
I live in the area and have a little info about the airplane. It is actually a static display as part of the scenery of the golf course.
