    Just a note that I found Maps Live from Microsoft now has 3D buildings of all of the Florida Disney and Universal parks and they're already loaded once you have the program, and so far look like they have more buildings in those parks than Google's

    Good to know. I'm having more fun with these programs. Good thing I actually have time to waste at work!

    Hello, Alain here . Just try again, and if i don't works - if the 3D download buildings are still floating - it may come from the "graphic card" of your computer .
    Also, i recommand to all of you to close all other programs before you start google earth, as i've noticed that the GE program "ask a lot" to the computer.

    For "Barbossa" : glad you love it ....and yes, it's a great - and contemplative - way to spend 3 hours of your day, just soaring over the world!

    I love looking at these aerial views. I only wish that they'd let us know what date the image was taken.
