Interesting Places To Visit In Flight Simulator

Epcot Center at Walt Disney World, near Orlando, Florida. The scenery is pretty cheesy. There's a cheesy version of Disneyland, too, on the West Coast in Anaheim, California.

This is probably the coolest scenery I've found. It's the Space Shuttle on the launch pad, at the Kennedy Space Center east of Titusville, Florida. You can take off right at the Space Center, using the huge runway that is the landing strip for the Space Shuttle (it's listed under Titusville). Note that there's a hollow blast pit under the Shuttle, and if you fly carefully, you can dive the Cub right under the Shuttle and come out on the other side. You can also land on the ground and taxi into the blast pit, which has extra chambers to the left and right. You can click on this picture to enlarge it; use your browser's "back" command to return.   Flying past the Three Mile Island nuclear reactor on the Susquehanna River near Harrisburg, PA. The reactor is a short distance south of Harrisburg International Airport, which is visible in the distance.

Both of these pictures were carefully posed using Slew Mode. They show the Spirit of St. Louis, Lindbergh's Ryan NYP airplane, flying past the Gateway Arch along the Mississippi River in St. Louis, MO. The picture that shows the river also shows the Eads Bridge (the arch bridge), which was the first steel bridge built in the U.S. (in 1874). (Previous metal bridges were made of iron, not steel.)

Flying over downtown Washington, D.C., something which would probably get you shot down if you tried it for real. In the left-hand picture, I'm flying over the Mall, with the Smithsonian Castle in the foreground and the Capitol in the background. The right-hand picture shows the White House and Washington Monument; at the right side of the picture, the orange dots are the approaches for National Airport.
