found a plane in the air near city centre frankfurt, looks class.

@Micky photos arent updated, there fixed once you download it but for some reason you have to be connected to the net to use it. If you redownload it after a few weeks there are often some new pics

That's pretty recent for satellite images to be made available to the public. 1 or 2 year old images won't be availble to us because of what they're used for & the costs associated with getting them.
