[DML] Re: DMC Factory and Test Track,and DMCHumble,and PJ grady


That's funny because at the same time you discovered it so did 
I,anyway I thought it would be nice to do a flyby over DMCHumble,and 
they make it so easy,all I did was put in their address/zip code,and 
it flew me RIGHT above their warehouse,and put me there in hover-
mode,it was a crystal clear view of the warehouse,I went down to 
about 400 feet!! I could easily make out,if there were any of our 
silver beauties,but alas, none to be seen,Then I zoomed out,and it is 
amazing how fragile,that warehouse looks from 1500+ feet!It almost 
seems like a kids toy-box,anyway,Then I did a flyover to Pj Gradys 
business,all I could say is WOW! When I zoomed in you could actually 
see our silver beauties reflecting in the midday sun,and THE best 
part was-- I could EVEN make OUT,my ex red Delorean parked there--
cool--If you want to see a particular destination just put in the 
same address in the what and where areas,and it will fly you right to 
your destination,try it out over your own residence,and see if you 
can see,your own silver beauty sitting in your driveway.
