Fun with Aerial Maps of Orange County

I was poking around TerraServer (similar to Google Maps’s arial images) and found the following image of an apartment fire in Santa Ana near Lyons Avenue. (A larger version is availabe here.) I remember hearing of a major apartment fire on Lyons Ave. that displaced a number of families a few years ago, but I’m not sure if this is the same one.
It looks like I’m not the only one with too much time on my hands — this fellow has a number of pages devoted to “sightseeing with Google maps.” He’s a little thin on Orange County sights, though. So what’s you favorite Orange County aerial photo?

    Just thought I would point out http://www.googlesightseeing.com Again, not big on the OC sights, but it actually is worldwide, and pretty interesting with some of the features.

    It’s always fun to figure out when the satellite images were taken.
