  • Ghost Plane at LAX in USGS urban ortho-imagery

    I was looking at LAX in USGS urabn area ortho-imagery mode and came across an ghost plane I guess due to some image processing artefact.

    Does anyone have a good explaination for the same?

    Clearly this is a top secret invisible plane government experiment and they are hiding the truth from us... which is easy, because it's invisible.

            It is USGS Ortho Imagery. It is 1meter to .7meter resolution.

                That's USGS Urban imagery, .25 meter.

                Shadow, go into Layer Manger -> Images -> High Resolution, select USGS Urban and deselect any others.
