They ended up deciding that it was an old map, 2006 or 07, and that those were new cars wrapped in plastic.

They don't disappear when I zoom all the way in.

2. Conspiracy theory stuff.
At the actual Google Maps site, there are all those vans at even the closest zoom setting. What the vans are, I do not know. It's an air park in inland Florida, not far from St. Augustine.

There is no factual information in the video...just typical CT crap.

3. I looked and they don't disappear when I zoom in completely.

5. One little patch of the vans is gone in the closeup view.
Could be different images from different days. There's lots of that on Google. One lake I look at has half the lake covered in ice and snow, and the other half open water. If you notice on the video, the contrast of the zoomed image is different in different parts of the image. That indicates photos from different days used in the composite.

Conspiracy theory nonsense.

8. I agree that it has happened but don't see it with this area.
I zoomed in and out and nothing missing. Both the North South and East West runways are nearly full even at full zoom.

There are semi trailers west of the North South runway.

7. It's nonsense. Probably old car stocks from dealerships being kept on that old
naval airfield. NOTHING indicates that they are UN vehicles.

12. Back at a auto plant I use to work the company would store excess vehicles
on the grass near an airport.

6. How about filling us in on the story here?
Is there a story behind the vans that makes them worth looking for?

11. No. It's just CT crap. YouTube is full of this stuff from people
who have nothing better to do that scroll around Google Earth and look for things to post that they don't understand. Typically, they attach some stupid conspiracy theory to their "discoveries" and try to spread that.

This sort of thing has no place on DU. Every time one of these things shows up here, people have to come to the thread to debunk the nonsense. It's a waste of time, and has nothing to do with politics at all.

Utter nonsense.

9. I heard about this several weeks ago. Also heard it was where one of the
foreign SUV manufacturers (Kia, Toyota) stores their products, which are all wrapped in white plastic to avoid damage in transit.Seems to me if they were supposed to be "hiding" some thing they aren't doing it very well.
My SO is a member of another board that has some t-bagger types, their conspiracy theory is, these are the vans waiting to take all the "important" people away from Florida when the tar hits the fan so to speak. They decide there were only enough vans to transport the politicians and moneyed people who are in on the oil spill "adventure".

10. That's what I heard. They're renting the airfield and storing new cars wrapped in plastic.

If you look closer there's a railroad near by.

16. The white vans are for snipers and "UN FEMA".
Beware the UN FEMA, and shun the frumious bandersnatch!

The Black Helicopters are for the secret military that's coming to take you away, ho-ho.

14. Whoever did the video imo is intentionally trying to give it credibility.
They made it difficult to see what they are doing by using an ?? Ipod ?? And they have the map filling 50% or less of the screen. Then to confuse it even more they show it other than North South making it difficult to compare side by side. Even with their attempt to deceive it doesn't show up the way they say it does.

On Google Map I see ALL of the vehicles.

On Google Earth they are ALL GONE. Except for the semi trailers.

15. Google Maps and Google Earth often show different images,
taken at different times. It's no surprise that they aren't always identical. You didn't think either of them was done in real time, did you?

Heck, in Minnesota, some images of lakes are half iced over with leafless trees, while the other half of the lake was shot during the summer. Lots of stuff to think about when viewing those images.

17. I never did. In fact most are probably about a year old.
And I never implied with any of my responses that there was any type of conspiracy. But do believe that the person making the video may have manipulated the video by providing less than adequate material to make it appear as if there was some conspiracy.
