I've never before been tempted to click the "Report a problem" button on Google Maps. But if this shimmering aeroplane over Rose Avenue isn't the cause or effect of some sort of problem, I don't know what is.
It looks ghostly enough that I was sure it'd been photoshopped, until, well, I went to the source myself. A trick of perspective? A trick of the light? Either way, between this and USB cable monster, it's increasingly clear that Maps is tired of letting Street View have all the fun. [Google Maps, Thanks Justin!]
