This satellite map has over 50 actual plane wrecks you can see when you zoom in very close and another 25 that have been geo-tagged as existing at the plotted location. They include commercial airline flights, military flights, and crashes high up in the mountains, deep in the jungle or underwater. Many made headline news. Included in this map are the crash sites of the famous Kee Bird, Curtiss C-46 Commando “Miss Piggy”, the SAAF 1716 (‘Pelican 16’) and the Kittyhawk which are all the subject of many online searches. Others, I doubt you ever heard of.
