I tried the Mt. Rushmore easy scenic flight and, even though I visited it about 40 years ago in a 1953 Buick, I couldn't find it! Things sure look different from a Cessna. I've tried to find other prominent features in various countries and always have great difficulty. Is there a map view that shows mountains, rivers, cities etc. with names? No points for guessing that I'm a noob.

Rushmore is there, in fact it's one of the already loaded flights that you can take.

Or you can buy this, it looks like it's exactly what your looking for.

If you do get it let us know how you like it.

I just can't work out how Radar Man does it.

I found Mt. Rushmore a while ago, but I missed it the first time. The default faces are not on the face of a cliff, as in real life, but stick up like doll heads above the top of the cliff. Microsoft didn't spend much time working on Mt. Rushmore. Crying or Very sad

The Mt. Rushmore flight was the one I was referring to. Thanks for the Abacus link, I'll try the demo.

True, it looks a bit cartoonish in a Monty Python sort of way.

OTOH, I found Devil's Tower once and regret spending the time looking for it, as it made Mt. Rushmore look totally real by comparison. 🙄
