This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile23296/Michael-Schumachers-Island.htm>Michael Schumachers Island</a></b><br><br>Michael Schumacher received an unique and unprecedented parting gift after his last Grand Prix in Brazil -- an island.<br />
<br />
Dubai's crown prince - Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum - reportedly decided to give the retiring German a piece of the man-made island paradise 'The World', located off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.<br />
<br />
'The World' is 300 islands clustered together in a nine kilometre zone to resemble Earth from an aerial photo.<br />
<br />
Schumacher's island, apparently part of 'Antarctica' on the artificial globe, is worth about (US) $7 million.<br />
<br />
Schumacher's manager Willi Weber confirmed: &quot;In a couple of years it will be finished. Then Michael and Corinna will have their own holiday island!<br />
<br />
&quot;Perhaps he will build a kart track on it.&quot;<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/186026island.jpg>

Ummm... that island isn't in the 'Antartic' region of the mini-globe, it's not even in the south. Its north of north america and it appears to be in greenland.

Looks like a lot of people have been fooled there. At least 5
icons are wrong on that island. And this is definitely not near Antarctica. Why is there no way to delete them?
