…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.

…Goggles lets you fly on Google maps?


Goggles is a Flash based Google Maps flight simulator. Using the arrow keys to bank and dive, A and Z to change speed, and the space bar to fire, you fly your little biplane around on a Google map, exploring any areas you please, including the Moon and Mars. It’s surprisingly fun for a game with no goal, and surprisingly addictive. Fly on.
