A cool way to fly over Google Maps -- with Goggles

Goggles is a very rudimentary flight simulator that lets you fly over some very well known areas in a cartoon biplane. It's awfully cute and quite a bit of fun. The perfect way to kill a few minutes and see the sights from the air. Not only is it a lot cheaper than a helicopter tour, it actually lets you fire guns at the passing monuments. (Not that you would do that.)

I know you are not going to pay attention once you get to the site, so let me point out the controls now:
  • Up - Up Arrow
  • Down - Down Arrow
  • Left - Left Arrow
  • Right - Right Arrow
Now for the tricky part:
  • Faster - A
  • Slower - Z
  • Fire - Space
