…You can fly around Google Earth?

Google Earth Flight Simulator

Take that, Microsoft!

In the latest version of Google Earth, Google added an easter egg in the form of a fully functioning flight simulator.

To access the simulator for the first time, hit CTRL+ALT+A in Windows, or Command+Option+A on a Mac, and a window should pop up offering you a choice between an F16 and an SR22, as well as a choice between starting positions.

There’s even joystick support if you’ve still got one of those lying around.

The maps below you are in full, 3D, Googley goodness, and the controls are surprisingly accurate, so get ready for some high flying fun, courtesy of the Google guys.
