Does Google Earth have secrets?

People have found "Easter eggs" (or hidden features or messages) in Google Earth.
Flight simulator, for example, was one such "Easter egg" introduced in Google Earth v4.2 that once became known was so popular it became an official supported feature in version 4.3.
See related links below to see Google's sense of humor. Some of the Easter eggs were one time only "features" (e.g. April Fools Day hoaxes) and have since been removed. Some of the reported "Easter eggs" are simply strange but large man-made creations that can be seen from aerial or satellite imagery.
