Navy's Barracks Looks Like Giant Swastika from the Air

Oops! The Navy's Coronado amphibious base and barracks, built in the 1960s, actually look like a giant swastika from the sky - as recently discovered by Google Earth.

Now, the US Navy is going to spend as much as $600,000 on landscaping and architectural modification to hide the shape.

People are making a big deal about the $600K but the fact is that they are doing various upgrades to the building as part of regular maintenance/modernization and as a part of the project, they are doing some cosmetic/landscaping changes to disguise the shape. The navy is not modifying the shape of the building or spending $600K on changing the shape to appease anyone. Folks need to get all the info before passing judgement.

someone over at boing boing pointed out that the two adjacent buildings look like bombers heading towards the swastika. As if it was a giant 8 bit mural.
