Google Earth threatens democracy

Military hardware laid bare to Godless commies

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

It's a matter of record that Google has obscured the White House roof, and the tops of other key US governmental buildings (Why? Because that's where they park the black helicopters, naturally), but this concession to national security does not extend to RAF Coltishall, the "Home of the Jaguar":

The chaps were obviously having lunch when the satellite passed over, because:

It's not just British air power which is blown wide open to internet snooping, though, as you can see down in RAF Fairford:

Nice. In conclusion, we'd like to say that we cannot claim to have scoured every tasty airbase in the world to see if Google has caught the propeller-jockeys with their trousers round their ankles, but we reckon readers will have hours of amusement hunting for naked military hardware, like this lovely display at Edwards AFB out there in sunny California. Go to it:

*No don't - we reckon we've got it sussed, but finding out will give you something to do this afternoon if you're at a loose end.
