9 boats on Google earth?

Just been having a play on Google Earth and spotted 9 submarines along side in Faslane and Plymouth.

How come there are so many not at sea?

Are they all in service? One looks like it is having alot of work done to it.

Are there anymore on there to be found?


Kind regards
Stepto.

Really? Is that why I can't see myself when I wave at the sky???

I know it's not real time. My house was built in 2005 and that's not even on there.

I was talking about when the arial photos were taken. I think they were done between 2004 and 2007.

The pics of Faslane and Devonport may well include one or more boats twice, as they will not have been taken at the same time. The boat on 6 berth at Faslane appears to be a T-boat in Ramp getting shots of the nozzles done.
 
Go to Rosyth and you will see a few more still awaiting a 1st SL and Minister of Defence who have the bottle to actually do something about them. Dreadnought has been rusting since 1982. All avoid making a decision on their watch just avoid it because it will be expensive and unpopular.

Hmmn, the other interesting thing about Google Earth is that it uses a military satellite, and guess what?

The photographs of allied military installations, funnily enough are "digitally enhanced" and some are surprisingly blurred.

If you look on Google Earth at Rosyth dockyard you will see quite a few boats alongside. There are the 4 old R class bombers there just waiting to die in the next hundred years or so

Cold War type biting...
Kildin Island is a bit fuzzy....can't see any shore based radars. It's much clearer from PD.
Never went down the river...no need, 'cos they came to us!
Gremika is fuzzy as well...now there's a place to get banished to!

Never heard of ANY of those places......
was never anywhere near them....they
do not exist, and neither does Novaya
Zemlya.

Google-Earth Buckingham Palace - and see
just how big her back garden is.

Added:- Work won't let me see it, but apparently
this is that non-existent place called Kildin Island.

Use Google Earth and type in Abbey Dore. See if you can spot the strange blue aircraft where there are no runways near by. Also have a good look for the trains in among the woods where no railway tracks link them to the main line and all those large and small firing ranges and other odd buildings.

I wonder what goes on there then?

You can see my house......before the garden went ballistic that is!
