Here are a couple screen captures from MapQuest. Very good quality, but it doesn't zoom-in close enough for ground foils.

Here are a couple screen caps from BingMaps. Excellent quality, and possibly good enough for ground foils. (Notice the Antonov An-124)

And here is Google Earth. This app zooms-in the most, but at anything closer than this, gets less clear and noisy.

I always use Google but airfield are blurry, may they should update it again especially with all the new airports rising.. I am using Bing always for search things, but never new they had a map and now I found it I like it very much.. As with MapQuest I can zoom in enough to see some nice details..

Thanks guys for these 2 websites

I did some more digging and found Zoom Earth. It uses the same satellite as Microsoft Bing Maps, but lets you zoom further in. This one seems promising because there's better contrast/color than Google Earth, plus there are no ©Google watermarks all over the image. I took a couple screen caps and then sharpened-up the second shot to give you an example of what can be achieved.

But how do I save a picture..??? Because I am going to build JFK Terminal 1 for my model airplanes and with Zoom I can make a beautiful terminal..

Bing is also good because I can measure things..

Well, the way I do it is press F11 key to get into full screen mode without borders. Then I press the Print Screen button (PrtSc) which saves the image temporarily to your computer's RAM.

Then open up your photo program. (I use Photoshop) Select File->New and select Okay. Your full screen dimension blank window will appear. Then select Edit->Paste which will then place the image from your RAM memory onto the blank canvass. Flatten the image and then you can print.

I apparently have an old laptop because my print screen is not working, so I will have to draw it over with paper and pencil..

Thank you for your help and I will spent some time with Bing and Zoom..
