Sat Apr 15, 2006 1:45 pm

This morning when I went into Google Earth, in the list of topics on the left was "Friendly Visitors". I clicked on it and it went here:

The Freindly Visitors thing doesn't come up on mine.

That place is Area 51, some 90 miles N-NW of Vegas.
You'll notice a few Janet 732s, 2 F16s, a few Blackhawks, and what look like some Beech 1900s.

It was Google Earth's April's fool:

Or simply Google for "google earth" "friendly visitors", a lot of links will show up.
