Google Maps is typically used to help with geographical locations and directions. However, every now and then the online tool shows something rather unexpected.
One user was browsing the landscape of Alameda, in California, USA when they happened upon a rather devastating scene.
The map image, which they later posted to Reddit, shows the scene of a long stretch of runway poking out into Oakland Bay between San Francisco and Oakland.
In the centre of the beige tarmac appears to be the aftermath of an aircraft crash.
The commercial plane is snapped in two on the runway of an old naval base.

Dark marks which to be the remnants of a fire scar the broken areas.
The front half of the plane, metres from its rear end, has the door open with stairs leading down.
The second half of the aircraft appears to have more damage.
Either side of the huge vehicle are its wings, snapped off and fallen to the ground.
