I have been messing with this one for a few weeks now its pretty good check it out...

World Wind lets you zoom from satellite altitude into any place on Earth. Leveraging Landsat satellite imagery and Shuttle Radar Topography Mission data, World Wind lets you experience Earth terrain in visually rich 3D, just as if you were really there.

Virtually visit any place in the world. Look across the Andes, into the Grand Canyon, over the Alps, or along the African Sahara.

I played around with it about a year ago. After your post I went and updated it. They seem to have enhanced it a bit and fixed a few things, I spent about an hour picking out the houses where I've lived using the aerial photos. Nice.
