Here's a chance to make a spectacle of yourself in front of the whole world on 
Australia Day.

On Friday, an aircraft hired by Google will be doing a series of low-level 
swoops over parts of Sydney, photographing the ground and waters below.

The three-seater plane, decked out in Google livery, will have special 
permission to fly at an altitude of 600m.

Providing the photographs turn out to be good enough quality, the images will 
be integrated into Google Maps, the free online mapping service used by 
millions of people around the world.
