7 Places Google Earth Doesn’t Want You To See

Google might be the key to everything you wish to know, but talking about its feature, Google Earth in particular, there is a limitation. The limitation lies in the fact that there are certain places in the world it won’t let you see. Places like:

1. Volkel Air Base, Netherlands


truTV reports that the place had secrets to keep, considering it went quickly blurry after WikiLeaks published a diplomatic cable alleging the presence of nuclear warheads at the base.
