Google, today, have launched a new feature called "Helicopter view".
Basically go to Google and select Google Maps.
3/4 down the left of the page it says..."driving directions to Agonda"
Just to the right of that is a little button marked 3D
Click it and open your screen to full size by pressing F11
You will need to Google Earth installed but hey, it's an excellent programme.
I've just typed Darlington to Newcastle upon Tyne in and Newcastle is all in 3D......WOW!!!!
