Good morning, passengers. 

You're flying Google Earth.

Right now we're taking off for Uluru, Australia.

And there it is, right down there, looking different, of course, to its usual photographed profile.

Now let's zoom in a little. We're still looking directly down on it, so now let's tilt it so we can see its imposing profile against the horizon.

Now, holding the tilt, we circle it to see it from all its angles.


Now let's fly across the landscape towards Alice Springs. Moving nice and slow, like the Flying Doctor on a rescue mission. We could cruise around Australia all day like this because it is just an amazing experience. But we'd probably run out of fuel.

What a magnificent landscape. Vast. Empty. Red. Barren. Beautiful.

is it time for a nap yet? i think so
