A shocked dad in England couldn’t believe his eyes after spotting a submerged plane on Google Earth.
Robert Morton, 55, found the incredible image under the sea near Edinburgh.
The father of three, from Doncaster, said the image appears to show an airliner under the waves.
He told Mirror Online that the discovery was “incredible and very strange.”
Morton, a mechanical fitter, said: “I was just looking on Google Earth on Monday and, by chance, I came across the picture of the aircraft.
“It looks like it is the sea, just off the coast of Edinburgh. It looks like it is underwater.
“It’s very, very strange. It’s incredible.”
“I have never actually seen an aircraft on Google Earth so it is very strange. It appears to be underwater.”

The bizarre image can be found around nine miles from Edinburgh airport, off the Scottish coast near Portobello.
So what is the story behind the picture?
Morton says he has never heard of a plane crash in that region — and suggests there is an earthly solution to the mystery.
He described his find as a “Google anomaly.”
Morton added: “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.”
