Skydiving on Google Maps

Super Skydive is a fun Dutch website that allows you to skydive above any location in the Netherlands.

Before you embark on your plane journey you first have to enter your destination (if you don't know any Dutch addresses try this one). When the plane reaches the skies above your destination a green light flashes and a film begins to play of someone preparing to skydive. The door of the plane then opens and you spring from the plane.

As you descend you can see your feet dangling over the satellite imagery of your chosen destination and the ground hurtling towards you.

This is a really great use of Google Maps' satellite imagery. Hopefully some other destinations will be added soon. I really want to skydive on the Giza Pyramids, the Eiffel Tower and Niagara Falls. So more soon please.
