Google Earth's Flight Simulator

Notes from ClifNotes, Sep 2007, permalink Games


Bill Webb dropped me a note the other day about Google's Flight Simulator. It's hidden inside the new version of Google Earth. I confess, I haven't even tried out Google Earth. I'd rather use FlashEarth when I want to look down from on high.


I did get curious and I looked for any reviews on it. Here's a blog about it from a student in Cape Town, SA.

Quote from Marco

Some time last week, Google expanded Google Earth with Google Sky. As fascinating as Google Sky is, that's not the focus of this post. Along with the latest update comes a hidden feature of which I cannot seem to find any other information about. It's not in the release notes and a search on Google produces no results. Seems Google have done one of their unpublicised updates they're becoming well-known for.
