The one we (flight sim enthusiasts) have been waiting for: Google Earth 4.2 incorporates a flight simulator.
Google Earth Flight Simulator

On the plus side:

  •  physics pretty good
  • most realistic scenery available 😀
  • always blue skies 😛
  • amazing experience of the landscape
  • easily controllable with the mouse & keyboard

On the minus side:

  •  no sound
  • have to pause on a regular basis to allow imagery to be updated
  • the occasional crash (as in, program crash!)
  • well visible that height info & textures don’t always align
