Google Maps Anomalies: Disco Inferno

Here’s a funky Google Maps anomaly submitted by blog reader Dave.

As you can see, what we’re looking at appears to be a plane parked behind a dance party right on the New River Estuary in Otatara, New Zealand. Or, as Dave puts it, “The world’s first estuary-based disco plane!” Now, I don’t know what exactly they’ve got going on in New Zealand, or why there was a disco party taking place near a river back when the satellite image was taken. But I’m not going to question it.

The Disco Plane used to be seen at the coordinates -46.443099,168.326093 on Google Maps, but it looks like that’s no longer the case.

Still, we have our memories.

Thanks for the tip, Dave!
