Peter Olsen is at it again. We recently showed you the neat 3D Disney Monorail that he created, and now he’s built a 3D animated tour of the 1977 Tenerife Airport disaster.
The tour is very impressive, and it covers the tragic events in great detail. He shows flight paths leading up to both planes arriving at Tenerife, and then 3D animations of the mistakes that led to the disaster.
This tour is an excellent example of how Google Earth can be used for educational purposes. You get the geographical reference of the planes arriving at the airport, information windows explaining what is occurring, and 3D models being moved around the airport to demonstrate the sequence of events.
You can download the tour KMZ file or read more about it in the 3D Warehouse. Nice work Peter!
