Have you downloaded the latest version of Google Earth? You probably thought Google Sky was cool. Wait till you see this!
Yup, I bet you didn't know that Google hid a flight simulator as an easter egg inside Google Earth (those sneaky guys, I wonder what else they're hiding). The instructions to start flying around are very simple.
First of all you'll have to install the latest version of GE. Once you've started it all up, explored Google Sky a bit, then all you have to do is hit Ctrl+Alt+A (if you're running OS X it's Command+Option+A).
A dialog box will popup and you'll have a choice of flying an F16 or SR22. Start flying from your current view, a list of airports or your last position. It even has joystick support! Plus it's all for the low low price of free. I bet the Microsoft flight simulator guys are peeing in their pants now.
