Google Earth: is it a plane disappeared or is it an anomaly?

Identified an aircraft in the Yucatan Peninsula

A plane that disappeared on the Yucatan peninsula in the Ria Celestún reserve or an anomaly from Google Earth? A report that has come to us from one of our readers -Andrea Antonelli- that by carrying out a research on the software produced by Google has identified the coordinates 20° 58' 18'' N 90°17' 00'' W what would appear to be a twin-engine aircraft precipitate. However, there would not be any aircraft dispersed in the area, which would suggest both what happened in November 2018 when a British man identified an airplane in the water near the airport of Edinburgh, and reported by the press a few months ago that that would seem to be the wreck of the Boeing B-777/300ER of Malaysia Airlines disappeared during the Kuala Lumpur-Beijing route and never found again.

The solution to these mysteries could be a simple anomaly of Google Earth that does not photograph airplanes or helicopters in flight, but that -in some limited cases- suggests an image on the ground due to the refraction of the shadow of the aircraft that was in the area in the when the area was mapped from the satellite.

Another suggestive hypothesis, however, is that it could be one of the many tourism planes that disappeared during the flights and never found; also because judging from satellite images that would seem one of the most classic light transport aircraft used in Central America to transport people to tourist destinations. A possible "mystery", which in order to be solved altogether would require -perhaps- an on-site inspection.
