Hi, don't know if I'm posting this in the right area..
Does anybody know how to make the Google Earth 3D view 'fly' like a plane?
I want to imagine I'm in the perspex nosecone of a bomber or whatever, looking downwards at say a 45 degree angle watching the scenery hypnotically roll underneath and at the same time control the direction and rotation so I can veer off to follow rivers roads and railways etc.
I'm halfway there, I know all the keys except one, namely which key starts the plane rolling forwards? It doesn't seem to be listed in the key list.
Once I can get the kite moving I can steer around like Biggles..
I'm Win XP Home

Hey There!

Have a look at this image I modified for illustration purposes:

Click the item on the right (second red square - the smaller one) until you reach the angle you wish and then all you need to do is click the "up" key afaik.

If you're into programming you can use the GoogleEarth API to control the camera from your own external application. Don't know if such a program erxists.... I bet it does!
