We all know the big thing: "google earth". Well yesterday I found a flight simulator in google earth. Quite amazing actually, you can actually fly around earth in a plane and see landmarks and other stuff like that. Here is a little guide on how to get this:

1) Go to: www.Google.com.
2) Click on more at the top.
3) Scroll down to even more and click.
4) Look for Google Earth (it is on the left hand side) and click on it.
5) Click on Download Google Earth.
6) Once downloaded, open up google earth.
7) Once started press Ctrl + Alt + A.
Cool This will open the flight simulator and bang! You are flying a plane.

I'd also like to add that you should probably start out with the 2nd plane (1st one is way to fast!) and for controls go to help and click on the user guide. hope this is helpful for ur flyin experience

If you have a joy stick it's a LOT easier, also don't try to fly and figure out where your going at the same time... I crashed many a plan like that "oh look, the altitude meter says 700...****..."

Also if on the right side of your screen it says STALL in red letters speed up and take off your flaps to regain control. I've crashed many times because i didn't know wat to do. P.S. all credit goes to Val for this he told me wat to do

Just would like to remind you Val that we should try to keep profanity down to a minimum.

Wow... that is really cool, although was very time consuming. I found a really sick nebula and wanted to save the file pic but it wouldn't let me, do you guys know how to do that?
