Airborne Model Aircraft on Google Earth

If you look around the Internet, you will find many collections of images captured by Google's cameras - from the air, land, and space. I decided to check a few of the more well-known model aircraft flying location to see if were are any airplanes in the air when the cameras snapped the shots. Here are few of what I found. If have any to add to the collection, please send me an e-mail.
