Microsoft Virtual Earth 3D flight simulator

Ever which you could navigate Microsoft Virtual Earth in 3D–from within a cockpit?  You can.  Developer Richard Brundritt has put together a Flight Simulator plugin for Virtual Earth that features a realistic cockpit with controls and readouts of latitude, longitude, heading, pitch and altitude.  You can control the simulator using either a computer keyboard or an Xbox 360 controller.

Richard has created a four-part blog series about how he created the plugin using the VE3D Map Control, and he’s also opened the source code to play around with.
