Find the airplane

Eric Brandhorst of Russell Street writes: “Mosquito readers who enjoy looking at maps might find the following challenge to be fun: In Google Earth or Google Maps there is an image of a jet airplane within Carlisle that was captured when the satellite image was taken. My daughter Claire and I stumbled across it one evening. It’s about 300 feet long and is colored like a rainbow. Can you find it?” ∆
