Ah, but the sweep of the wings is very Boeing. My guess is that it's a 747-200 or similar.

I've heard those who produce paper maps include intentional mistakes should they ever need to prove others have copied their maps instead of producing them from real world data. A plane's a little bit too obvious though I would've thought...

like the island of Maria Laxara. That seems to be the explanation for those otherwise disappearing islands.

You'd be surprised. Look carefully at the map page and you'll see the "Plane on a stick" company directly below there.
