    Default UK Censorship

    Can any M4 commuter reveal what's been censored here; half way between Heathrow and Chiswick.

    I can't see any good reason for censoring it, there's really not much there by the look of things. Much of the area north of the M4 is Osterley Park which is owned by the National Trust and operates as a nature reserve. Here's a link to the aerial view in Multimap:

    I see Longwood Nature Reserve in the MultiMap view. Could it be a nudist colony??

    Default Concorde

    Just had a look down from the M4, there used to be a Concorde at the end of runway 23, but it's not there now. Has something happened to it?

    Could be this one, it seems to be moving somewhere out of service. I believe one was going to be cut up for transporting somewhere else (Manchester?)

    No, I had that one marked already. I also have the 2 parked up just South West of this one. There were 4, now there are 3. It was there yesterday as I was GE'ing for various planes and marked 4 at Heathrow. Can anyone find the missing Concorde, or even locate one elsewhere in the World.

    StuJo, It looks like the GE monster has update some of the on-line pictures. Heathrow, or parts of it have been updated to a much higher resolution. It's a pitty, because some of the better finds will eventually disapear like the Concords, the BBMF Lancaster in flight & other things like that.

    Is there any case of censorship in GE that we KNOW what they hide?

    Could it something to do with the Sultan of Brunei? I think he has his UK residence near Syon House, but would he be important enough to warrant this kind of "censorship?"

    He might not be 'important' enough in the sense of a political figure...

    But he certainly would be rich enough to buy a few square miles of google earth.

    Reckon I might be able to afford my own pixel !
