I am guessing that Google is using a special algorytm to remove all aircraft from their application.

Probably just the way the photos were stitched, and a bit of luck/coincidence.
More often than not, photos from multiple passes are used for adjacent images. If things work out just right, this could be the result you’ll get.
I don’t really see the benefit of actively removing aircraft from the images, but you never know.

Take the most recent picture (Button with the watch and the green arrow) and you see a lot of planes!

If ever a discussion was worthy of the "Trivia" classification, it must surely be this one.

Google is American. In the most recent pictures, they clean up every airport where a number of B737Max are parked.... :lol:
