Google Earth and it's hidden flight simulator

By now I'm sure you've all been told about the 'hidden' flight simulator sitting inside the latest release of Google Earth ... no, not heard - you have now!

I gave it a go and had a fun 15 minutes careering around the sky over London looking down upon the Cockneys, as one does.
