    You can find more info and links here and some interesting things to look at here (that'll link you into Google Maps though, still pretty good) and a Google Earth blog here.

    Apologies - slightly off topic.

    Anyone know how old the images are? From a scan of my area they appear to be at least a year old (new houses etc.)

    To be honest, no

    I think there all different. The low-res pictures were taken by satellites, but the high-res ones were taken by photographers in planes, so whenever these photographers were circling your area, that is how old they are!

    No I mean that you can get an application that monitors real flights. You can see the coming and going and moving around on the google earth map.
