Unusual Image on Google Maps

So I was having a quick glance at Google Maps, trying to work out a route between the train station and a venue and noticed something a little odd on the map.  I've taken a couple of screenshots for you:


It's an aircraft flying quite low over London.  I was quite excited because I hadn't seen this one logged on any of the websites that provide links to the weird and wonderful images caught by satellites or another form of aerial photography.  Seeing the Red Arrows lined up at Blackpool Airport or John Travolta's plane on his driveway always makes me smile.  I know, I know...

EDIT:  It appears it has been in the news earlier this year.  It was Picture of the Day in the Telegraph back in February.  I'm still quite excited about *my* first "find" though.
