Checking Google earth's 3D features

I was on a flight between Paris and San Francisco last week when we flew over Greenland. The view was awesome, I felt I HAD to take some pictures.
I looked up the places on Google Earth and here is a comparison of the real picture and the Google Earth 3D modelization.
Pretty close to reality, isn't it?

This post was featured on Digg's first page. Thank you to the hundreds of diggers and the thousands of visitors!
Feel free to contact me at greenlandplane-at-gmail(dot)com if you are interested in a higher-resolution version or in other pics of Greenland taken on the same day.

Wow, excellent setup of the angle and height of both picutes! Amazing shot, however it is still much cooler to see some of this stuff in person, and not from a map or book.

Fantastic! Well done. The exactness of the model versus reality is quite impressive. Glad you posted this.

The diggorific comments leave something to be desired, however. LOL
