Yikes! Fortunately, it isn’t real:

The new Aerial imagery available from the Google Labs experiments in Google Maps shows what looks like a plane crash at Alameda Point in California.

However worry not. The plane crash is actually a mock up created for an episode of the paramedic series Trauma.

The episode featured a mock plane crash for which pieces of a Boeing airliner were used to simulate a crashed plane. To view the images of the plane crash on Google Maps you will need to enable the Aerial Imagery option in Google Labs on Google Maps (open Google Maps and click on the green flask at the top of the page).
