    Default "Longoria writ large — in Nevada desert"

    Maxim creates 110-foot magazine cover with help from Vegas officials

    "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."

    Remember what movie these are from? I bet you don't!

    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.
    Check out the Only Google Earth Wiki on the internet.
