Places Google Earth Will Never Let You See

1/14 Volkel Air Base, The Netherlands

An air force site was transformed into a pixelated work of art so viewers can't see any details. The Netherlands air force base went abstract when Wikileaks divulged the presence of nuclear warheads within its walls. Wikileaks published a diplomatic cable that confirmed the presence of nuclear warheads at the base in 2010, but it had never been officially confirmed until the former prime minister let the military secret slip. He told National Geographic, "I would never have thought those silly things would still be there in 2013. I think they are an absolutely pointless part of a tradition in military thinking."
