Plane Crash on Google Maps

Aerial View Map

Google Maps aerial view has got some great shots of a simulated plane crash that was created for the television series Trauma. The mock airliner crash was filmed on the runway of the former Navy base at Alameda Point.

A Boeing airliner was used as the mock-up of the crashed plane. I think the episode was filmed in 2009. Google's aerial view imagery of the area was released at the end of 2009, so I assume the imagery was gathered at some point during that year.

If you go to my Aerial View Map the plane crash can be viewed by clicking on the 'Simualated Air Crash' link. You can see the crash from different angles by using the Google Maps compass or the directions buttons above the map.

Here is the plane crash itself in NBC's Trauma,
