It was taken the same day as the 3D imagery, probably near the same time. You can tell because of how the same cars are parked in the same places, even in public parking lots.

Pretty both were taken during late summer

Good catch, I didn't notice that my 3D-rendered car was in the same spot.

In fact, the boundary line between the new and old imagery has made it so that my my 3D-rendered car is both at home and at work simultaneously.

Not Google Maps but the Jackson County parcel viewer has a pretty recent satellite view map layer you can view:

The imagery is from within a couple months as you can already see the UMKC dorms have been demolished on Oak

It's 98% the size of A + B + C combined.

Old: about 1.1 million square feet
New: ~1,086,000 sq ft

What I find interesting is I didn't realize how close parking will be to the tower. Also can see how leaving the airport will have a good view of the runways.

Old terminals are about 2200 linear feet end to end. New terminal is about 1500 feet across each leg and the "bridge' is about 800 feet. So 4400 feet old vs 3800 new.

But yes looks huge in comparison.

98% size, 1000% the functionality. Hard to tell the scale from the road.

KCMO Google Maps satellite view is from around Aug 2018. It's over 2.5 years old at this point. We are overdue for an update.

I assume they just pay planet labs for these? I think they try to keep everything within three years so you're probably right.
