Americons: a Google Earth tour

We have featured Colin Hazelhurst’s work a number of times before, including a recreation of the famous flight of The Spirit of St. Louis flown by Charles Lindberg, and James Cook’s circumnavigation of New Zealand.

He has recently produced a new tour he calls ‘Americons’ showing the Spirit of St. Louis visiting the Golden Gate Bridge. It is best viewed in Google Earth by downloading this KMZ file, as you can pause it at any time and have a look around at the scenery.

He has also put a video of it on YouTube:
