Satellite Sleuths Trace Helicopter Crash

helicopteri.jpgSatellite imagery from Google Earth captures helicopter in a Mostoles, Spain, bullring before its non-fatal crash. Google Earth Blog reports say that Spanish opposition leader Mariano Rajoy was aboard the helicopter when it crashed minutes after leaving the bullring.

Video cameras watched as the helicopter went down just outside the stadium. CNN covered the breaking news.

A Google Earth satellite image searcher stumbled across what he noticed could be the December, 1, 2005, helicopter crash just before it happened. Frank McVey helped determine the photos date stamp, and authenticity.
