Google Earth contains a "hidden" yet complete flight simulator! Currently, two jets are available (F16 and SR22), and also the list of airports is not that long. Just open Google Earth (you'll need the newest version, 4.2)

67 views, no replies. I guess it works, and you all have been busy?

Does anyone think its at all strange that this feature is there, or is it one more reason to use Google's service?

Google has allot of strange features. Go to Google, type in "Google Goth" and hit the "I'm feeling lucky button." Lot's of strange stuff there.

Thanks for the info though, I'll try it out when I have the time.

Now lets see if this post's three times......

Awesome! Glad that I could be of assistance.

I still actually haven't tried it yet, becaus eh comp I am using at work doesn't have google earth, and I need new cooling fans for my home set up.

So cool.
Glad it works!

Ah... apparently since I found this on an OS X blog, that the key commands are for MAC.

Sorry for any confusion, I should have paid closer attention!

Hey this is really great!!! But flying a plane with a mouse and keyboard is very difficult.


Thanks for the heads up!
