<a href=http://msnbc.msn.com/id/12186858>Maxim creates 110-foot magazine cover with help from Vegas officials</a>

"For air travelers flying over southern Nevada this week, the view offers more than miles of dusty desert.

A giant, bikini-clad Hollywood star perched on the desert sands isn’t a mirage, but a recreation of a Maxim magazine cover.

The cover is made of a vinyl-mesh screen and reads, “THE ONLY MAGAZINE BIG ENOUGH TO BE SEEN FROM SPACE — AND ONLY IN VEGAS!” A barely dressed Eva Longoria, star of ABC’s “Desperate Housewives,” graces the 75-by-110-foot display just outside Primm, near the California state line."

GE file taken from <a href=http://www.maximonline.com/maximusa>here</a>.They may indeed have built that magazine cover in the desert, but it's NOT visible on GE. The linked file is an overlay of a JPG.

Well yes, It isn't from Google Earth because those images could be a few years old, Therefore there would be no other way to do it.
