They covered it with camouflage netting and to make it look like a rural subdivision from the air.

That’s pure genius! I think I also saw on History channel or Discovery how the or English hired an illusionist to help hide a specific shoreline so that the German airforces would be confused at night to their actual location for the bombing raids..
