Helicopter View is one of the cool features Google added last week. It basically flies you through your driving directions. Google said, "Using the 3D preview; however, you can get aerial view of the route, as if you were in a helicopter flying above the road."

Here is a video of it in action:

Google also cleaned up the design of Google Maps. Many small tweaks here and there. This is documented in this blog post.

Thanks for sharing!  This is a pretty neat feature that I can see myself using on trips.  I also enjoy the prior feature enhancement of the weather overlay on Google Maps.
