Cruise missile streaks across Google Earth

MD80 (Maybe a CL65) on its way to Salt Lake from PHX

The image is of an MD80 (Now owned by Boeing) passenger airliner. The light markings on the inboard section of the wing are not engines, but marked-nonskid areas for passengers over-wing evacuations of the aircraft. Two engines, which are visible on the tail and the contrails indicate its not a weapon just an airliner.

Amazing all the hubbub this has stirred up.
