(THE BLAZE) -- If you go to Google maps and search 16°51′53″N and 11°57′13″E something pretty cool happens: you’re taken to a place in the middle of the Sahara Desert. Zoom in and you would see a compass with the image of an airplane in the middle.

And that’s not an icon.

The image is actually a giant tribute to all the passengers and crew who lost their lives in a plane crash more than two decades ago.
