Google Maps users were fascinated at the sight of what appears to be a stealth aircraft flying above fields of crops.

The Reddit user posted the snaps with the caption, "Google maps can see stealth aircraft," and received 1.5k upvotes.

The grey arrow-shaped jet looks as though it is moving so quickly it is blurred on the camera at the coordinates of 39°01'18.5"N, 93°35'40.5"E.

Over 50 comments from fans of the application have been posted to the forum, comparing the find to the current row between China and the US over Ukraine.

One user said: "This is the reason for the amount of satellite launches from China."

Another added: "The US already operates its MiG-23s under the YF-113 designation; presumably, if we move them from testing into active service, they'll become the F-113, heralding the glorious return of the Century Series. Also, being designated F-11X makes them stealthy."

A third wrote: "Chinese counterintelligence strategy."

"You can see the active camouflage artefacts when viewed from above," a fourth commented.

Over the last few months, Bejing local media have expressed concern over the military activity as World War 3 fears have been rising.

Last month, reports emerged that a US warship sailed through Taiwan Strait despite rising tensions as China has threatened to take the country by force.

It was part of what America's military has called "routine activity" but the Chinese government believes America is trying to raise tensions further.

According to South China Morning Post, the US Navy said the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer Milius conducted a “routine Taiwan Strait transit” through international waters on Tuesday.

The Navy's statement added: “The ship’s transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the US commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific. The United States military flies, sails, and operates anywhere international law allows."
