Yes, this was about four years ago (wow, time does fly), the plane out of Malaysia that disappeared somewhere in the Indian Ocean. We discussed it when Zak was still here. The google map video is interesting. I'll need to take the time to watch all of it.
Edit: Now this I find an interesting subject to discuss. But maybe that's just me.

The image on Google Maps of what appears to be a plane is located at 12.089035, 104.151964
This is about 60 miles northwest of Phnom Penh airport. If they haven't already done so, a small plane could easily go there, fly around for a while, and see what they see. Or they could send a military or science plane with all the high-tech radar and sensors and see what they can see.
Big planes don't usually remain intact when they fall out of the sky. Maybe it's a plane that happened to be flying through the frame when the picture was taken. Or something.

Yes -- I thought it was the same story you were interested in at the time it happened but wasn't sure.
If it is the same plane and somehow ended up on the ground relatively intact, I wonder what happened to the people. It would be awful to think they were trying to survive in a remote place all this time (assuming any would still be alive.
Also, several pieces of wreckage pulled from the Indian Ocean have been positively identified as being from MH370. The location at 12.089035, 104.151964 is 95 miles from nearest part of the ocean (Gulf of Thailand). It's hard to imagine how pieces of a plane that crashed so far inland, and looks to be largely intact, could have gotten into the ocean.
