Are you sure? If you click on the "Google Earth Community" box, it shows pegged messages that people have posted. Some show the locations on the viewer of airplanes in mid flight, big jet liners even.

I hav no idea of that beforehand, at the time of me dreaming about it.

And that time last year when me and my friend both randomly decided to research Tupac on the same day, and found out about it later when we got to school the next day.
OMG, that is just too weird. It’s not like college kids are known for drinking Gatorade and for drinking too much alcohol. And its not like high school kids have an interest in Tupac. Weird….

The majority of their images are from Satellite. In urban centers, like Manhattan, they have used planes to get their images, for closer, clearer images. So, they use both satellites and planes.

Another interesting fact: The images are developed on film, and then scanned in manually by Google staff.
