    Default Aircraft on car park?

    Some days ago I found this airplane between Legoland and Billund airport, Denmark. Is this light aircraft parked on the road, or is it flying over. Any idea?
    Position 55.44.09.10 N 09.07.49.52 E

    It's probably flying...It wouldn't make sense if it were parked there...

    Hi, I'm Ravenfeather, and I approve of this assumption.

    Some phrases should never end in "Sort of", phrases like "I love you" and "You're going to live..."

    Given that there are two parked a bit to the NE, I vote for "it's parked".

    Flying ... sure!

    There is a shadow on the cars parked in the car-park area.

    Other two planes are of course on ground. Probably they parked there because the car parking lot is full. Just gone for

    Not only is it parked, but it's made out of Lego, I took a close up of the guy standing next to it, you can see it here ...

    I vote for "it's a parked plane", because of the shadow, the other 2 planes, and the nearby airport.

    Default Parked plane

    Do you know it is a LEGO - or is it just a guess?

    No way that plane is flying. For the shadow to be that close to the plane it would have to be no more than 30-40 feet above ground. Absolutely no way it would be that close to the ground in that location. With rollercoasters and rides in the park across the street no way.

    The plane has to be a display of some sort.

    They could very well take off or land approach over the rides area. See the attachment of our local fair grounds.

    My mind works better in sentences with spaces and long paragraphs loose me sometimes cause I need to picture what is going on at the same time I am reading.

    Not unless they turn sharply from the runway. Look at the angle of the runway with respect to the planes position. The plane would have flown at a low altitude right across the runway? Seeing how it is a commercial airport that would be very highly unlikely.

    It's a small yellow plane on staic display at the entrance to the parking area of Legoland and Billund Airport.
    Believe me, if you visit the origin Legoland you'll see it.

    Right Dalreg, as per the shadow of the plane ( and of the tree next to it ) it is as low as the tree height and there should be a hit.

    It seems to be a entrance display kept on some platform.

    And we also have a ground truth info from Sladys from Denmark itself.

    Now that that's settled, can someone tell me what's casting the shadow just to the north (55.737355,9.130104)?
    I have an existential map; it has 'you are here' written all over it.
