Humor "Here's a question for you: what have the Nazi wartime test facility at Peenemunde and the Australian city of Perth got in common? Well, the first thing (and just about the only thing, truth be told) which springs to mind is that they are both next to large bodies of water. This is useful if you're going to test things which might go bang. Like V-2 rockets and - wait for it - flying cars."

Hoax

Ladies and gentlemen.. it's a Hoax. If you look at the "supposed" shadow and then compare it's color to some other "real" shadows (other cars have slight shadow patches near them too) you'll see a nice color difference. I bet it was added in some lossless format and then converted to jpeg (thus the "edgy jpeg-like distortions" around the black patch).

And if not that than I agree with Rinnan.

It isn't photoshopped, as you can go to the coordinates and see for yourself in Google Earth. I'm pretty sure Google wouldn't photoshop inside Google Earth.
