An eagle-eyed father was stunned when he spotted what looks like a plane underwater off the coast of Scotland on Google Earth.
Robert Morton, 55, found a clear image of what appeared to be an airliner under the ocean near Edinburgh.
The father-of-three, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, described his chance discovery as ‘incredible and very strange’ to Mirror Online.

‘It looks like it is underwater,’ he told the website.
But he conceded that it’s more likely to be a glitch that occurred when a Google satellite snapped the image as a plane flew by.
The location of the plane is less than nine miles from Edinburgh Airport.
‘I have never heard of any aircraft crashing leaving Edinburgh or that area,’ Mr Morton said.
At first glance, the Google Earth image looks like a plane underwater off the coast of Scotland
‘I know the picture of the plane isn’t really in the water, it’s probably the satellite looking down on it through thin cloud giving it that appearance.’
It comes after a pilot claimed to have discovered parts of doomed Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in a jungle in Cambodia using Google Earth.
Daniel Boyer says he has located the engine, tail and cockpit of the plane buried in the jungle north of Phnom Penh using Google Earth.
