In version 4.2 Beta you can fly around google earth in a plane.

To access the flight simulator you need to position Google Earth over the US. Then press Ctrl+Alt+A, or if you're on a Mac Command+Option+A. According to Marco some people have reported that Ctrl+A or Ctrl+Windows+A works when the standard Ctrl+Alt+A does not.

lol yeah, interesting stuff Google comes up with...

also, there's news of a new satellite being sent up to take better, higher-res pictures of the Earth to increase Google Earth's clarity and stuff.... each pixel will now be around 3 feet...which is quite scary, come to think of it. BR comes to mind...

So wait, they're gonna start shipping off groups of kids to murder each other for the sake of... nothing? I bet they'll also have live feeds, too! Rofl. In all seriousness, this is exactly what the government wants, a way to track people without them knowing it. Google, although they may be independent, seems to be playing right into their hands. Think Patriot Act, except it wasn't set up by the government so they can't take the fall. Google is getting into some serious controversial territory here. Let's hope it all doesn't come crashing down.

Well, it's not like they're streaming live video, and the photography from the current Google Earth is (at least, in some parts) a few years old. If you find UH Manoa on Google Maps/Earth, the tennis courts are still in construction.

Rofl. In some cases it's a lot newer. I'm pretty sure that they can grab new pics whenever they feel like it too. Worst comes to worst, some psycho hijacks the satellite to blackmail the government.
