    While checking out something in google maps, I ran across an odd item.
    Seems someone parked an airplane on a pad beside a building.
    But it's no airport. The airport is down the street.
    This is on E Sunset in Paradise.. Between Pecos and Tamiyasu.
    The north half of the block is one huge park, but does not belong to the county.

    I think this would make a good subject to cover for a video.
    What I want to know is, is it private property or what?

    For google maps enter 3223 E Sunset Rd Las Vegas Nv.

    Zoom out a little...its a couple miles from an airport. Its just a private jet that is towed to the airstrip when the owner is ready. I bet its in a "no-fly" zone.

    The real answer is - Wayne Newton!
    Thanks to Mark Hall-Patton (pawn stars) of the Clark County Museum for identifying it.
    The plane was Newton's personal Boeing 707 without engines or instrumentation.
