Press CTRL + ALT + A in Google Earth v4.2 and higher to start a secret flight simulator that takes full advantage of Google's extensive satellite imagery. The flight controls are as follows:

To fly from any airport in the world, rotate the airstrip to the vertical position on screen. Zoom down to two meters or less if possible. Enable the "Flight simulator" code. You will be on that tarmac and facing in the correct direction. If not, turn 180 degrees.
Orient your view to your desired direction of flight, then touch down to ground level anywhere. Start the F-16 flight simulator, go to full throttle, and take off using only the flaps set to 100%. Once airborne, lower flaps to 40% and at 5,000 feet, lower them to 20%. The plane will oscillate in altitude and speed before settling in around 30,000 feet at 520 mph, and will remain locked in a level position LEFT to RIGHT. Let the program idle and the aircraft will remain on that set course.
