Huge plane in my hood?!

Surfing with Google Earth, i came across this HUGE PLANE in my neighborhood!!
I didnt know that such a gigantic plane can be parked in someone´s backyard in a residential zone full of mansions.
The main question is what kind of plane it is? Seems to be a 4 propeller or 4 turbine airplane. I calculated the size in 50 meters long x 45 meteers wide, the location is 25º19.38S 57º30.91W

That is so cool. What a great playroom for the kids. Or maybe it's a granny annex, or Bed and Breakfast rooms. I want one too.

Re: Huge plane in my hood?!

Pretty sure. Quad jet, long skinny engines, probably quite old... 707 fits the bill. You should swing by and find out the story!

I think they use the plane when the car breaks.

I will go today and take a closer look.
I also found this in the airport at 26º15.42S 57º31.15W, the profiles are similar as well as the dimensions. Note that the place also has some old planes, maybe in disuse.

Re: Huge plane in my hood?!

Nice job photoshoping the plane. It looks like a TU-160 which is a Russian jet powered bomber.

Is not a Photoshop, look in earth at 26º15.42 south - 57º31.15 west for the airport planes and 25º19.38 south - 57º30.91 west for the backyard one.

EDIT: The Tupolev TU - 160 looks more sleek and the engines cant be seen from above.
EDIT 2 : The engines CAN be seen from above, my mistake

You think that's a Blackjack? Seriously?

TU-160 =



And no, it's actually on Google. First thing I did was go to the site and enter the coordinates.

Wonder how you managed to park that in such a tiny space, i guess you have parking sensors installed
