3D flyover of Washington DC

I woke up feeling patriotic this morning. There is no better way to honor one's country than by checking out the capital. I wsan't feeling up to flying there, so I'd figured Google Earth could take us. Lets see what we find!!

Reflecting pool - Home of Martin Luther King's Famous "I have a dream" speech

Pentagon - Home of the U.S. armed forces

Smithsonian Institute
Washington D.C. has some gorgeous buildings, and the mall area itself is a wonderful urban space. Its obviously worth a visit if you've never been. Special thanks to the Google Earth community for all this wonderful 3D building imagery that has been created! A lot of America's cities are starting to look very realistic.

Want to see the video flyover? Download this KML file and open it in Google earth. It will allow you to play it like a video file. Definitely worth checking out! Download here
