What are your favourite areas on the maps? Anything I could fly over and have a nice look at?

Helsinki stadium.

Leningrad docks and the island fortress west of Leningrad in the Gulf of Finland.

The Reichstag & Brandenberg gate in Berlin.

The castle & monastary in the crimea. The castle is on the coast not far from Yalta IIRC and the monastary is at the north east corner of some town inland, sorry but I don't recall the name.

The mountains along the Kuban and Crimea coasts are good if you like mountains.

Apparently there is a crater from an asteroid strike on the Smolensk map. Somebody gave directions to it in an old post, it just looks like a round lake or something.

All of the above AND:

The oasis on the desert map.

Southeast Kuban map with all the uber mountains and valleys. With the right plane you can set down on, and take off from, some of the flat mountain tops.

Le Harvre,Caen in Normandy is pretty good to look at,especially if you add a sunset to the map and fly over the fields with a nice looking plane,really calming.

Helsinki stadium.

That's weird because it was built in 1952...

A second phase of construction was finished in 1952, but the first phase was from 1934-38. It was built for the Olympic Games of 1940, which were cancelled because of the war. Here is some more information about the stadium:
