How about 4 of the same type of aircraft.

Possibly, but they are spaced evenly and look exactly the same.

Wouldn't the shadow be the same also. look at the shadow for the tail fin, it's rotating as the planes position changes. I'm not sharp on satelite imaging but for it to be the same plane wouldn't the angle or perspective change? Oh yea. and wouldn't other planes be in 4X also??

It's simply four United Airlines planes waiting in line for takeoff. Four different planes, not the same plane photographed four times.

You're right about the angle thing, which I didn't see. However, the last statement isn't necessarily true...there's been plenty of cases in GE where a plane is captured 2 or 3x in a row, but no other plane t the airport is. But, you stand correct. I'll remove the file.
