This is very cool.

You can pan left, righ, up, and down. Also, zoom in and out.

I'd like to know how they captured this 360X360 image. You can pan down to see an empty seat and up to see the closed canopy. Where was the leprechaun with the camera standing???

Enjoy.

My BIL and his 15 YO daughter just flew a P-51 in Orlando. I looked sweet.

They used one camera and just took multiple shots by hand and stitched them together in software. Little variations in where the camera is centered get automatically corrected, so as long as they kept the camera more or less in the same point in space above the seat it all works out. They may have even used a pan platform for most of the images, and then a few hand held shots to fill in the gaps below and directly above the camera.

Yep. Same way that virtual tours are shot for homes. Done properly, you can pan +/- 180° on all 3 axes and never see the tripod. Pretty neat.

There are also jointed armatures with calibrated gradations on each axis that let you shoot coverage of spherical panoramas from a fixed point. My friend has one, he's been playing with it and his SLR on some local mountaintops. I'll see if I can find some of his photos.
