Flight Simulator in Google Earth

If you have the latest version of Google Earth, you are also now the proud owner of your very own flight simulator.
From earth.google.com:

To enter the flight simulator mode, press Ctrl + Alt + A (Command/Open Apple Key + Option + A on the Mac). Once you have entered flight simulator mode for the first time, you can re-enter the mode by choosing Tools > Enter Flight Simulator. To leave flight simulator mode, click Exit Flight Simulator in the top right corner or press Ctrl + Alt + A (Command/Open Apple Key+ Option + A on the Mac).

Using data from Google Earth is a great way to get more realistic terrain in a simulator and avoids having to load gigs of data onto your hard drive before hand.
