Flying Car Uncovered by Google Earth?

Did Google Earth uncover a secret Australian flying car? You can't fool The Register:

Which leaves just one possible explantion: the Aussies have developed a gravity-busting hyperdrive, have bolted it into a second-hand Holden, and are seen here in the split second before their X-Motor made the transdimensional leap to hyper light speed.

Cool photo! Highly improbable, though. Given the number of ground-level collisions that occur, one would still need to earn an aviator's license before flying anything, even if it looks like a car. The photograph could easily have been faked, of course; the first step in confirming this would be to look at an enlarged hi-rez copy and see if the pixel-pattern changes where the flying car is. Another possibility is that the car is actually a display mounted atop a pole, as one might find at a used-car dealership. Given the apparent time-of-day indicated by the shadows, the pole's shadow would be eclipsed by the car's in this photo, and a reflective metal pole of steel would be virtually invisible in a picture of this quality.

Even still... It would make traffic jams and parallel parking a lot easier to deal with! I like.

Maybe it's a sign. If Google Maps published roads in that part of Austrailia, there might be a picture of the place. Oh well, don't mean to destroy all the fun!

Yet another flying car visible with Google Earth?

All of us remember this strange story when appeared in The Register showing a flying car in Perth, Western Australia. Well, australian people have done it again and here is a second flying car!, this time in Cockburn, a city located about 22km south of the Perth CBD.
