The GE-copter and PhotoOverlay Transparency

Continuing the theme of messing about with PhotoOverlays in Google Earth, here's the first outing of the panovoyant GE-copter to Canary Wharf.

View in Google Earth

The cockpit started life as a series of screen grabs from Microsoft Flight Simulator X which were stitched together into a panoramic image with Realviz Stitcher. I cut the windows out in Photoshop, then applied the script that I described in a previous post to slice it up into tiles.

I reckon it would work with other aircraft too - maybe a microlight or hot air balloon. The back of Pegasus, Gwaihir or a dragon might be an intersting alternative!
