Have you seen the BA advert where a plane taxis through the streets of London? You can now see it pass (very briefly) near your house. If you are lucky it will even show your actual home. Add postcode or address, each gives a different view in my case. My GCs loved this.

grin It showed the wall opposite our house!
Thanks, shysal!

It shows my house, so I tried my dgs's address thinking he would love it, but it didn't pass his house.sad

You can see any home in the world on Google Earth - I can see the flowers in my daughter's garden in New Zealand.

Yes, but not with a ruddy great plane passing! grin

Ella for one moment, I thought ......'why the dog's address? Don't they live at the same house?'

I've cleaned my specs now grin

Fat chance here! Even 'normal' street view hasn't found us yet. grin

The DGC loved it. Thank you shysal

Never mind the GC - I love it! I have seen 2 DD's houses, my neighbours round the corner and am about to try my old home in Scotland. Wish I could pause it though!

Brilliant shysal plane went past our house , I could see the wheelie bin in the back garden.

Brilliant, shysal and, with just a quick look, the garden looked lovely!

shysal Tue 24-Jul-12 15:31:11

kitty it was probably the way your garden looked a year or two ago! The images are usually quite old on Google Earth street view.

it says that I need flash to be able to view it ?

whenim64 Tue 24-Jul-12 15:40:52

glamma that only applies if you are something like a smartphone or iPad. If you're on a laptop or PC it'll work. smile

Wow yes, it showed very plainly the short road leading down to my cul-de-sac.
