re flight simulator stuff, you can try NVIZ's keyframe animator tool for making fly-by movies, and also NVIZ's "flight mode" mouse controls.

I have long wondered about exporting GRASS maps to FlightGear using the TerraGear scripts but have never got around to trying it. Then you can fly around your maps in a real flight simulator.
http://www.terragear.org  (site down? try internet archive or google cache)

you can get basic data from VMap0 (see grass newsletter articles), SRTM elevation, and LANDSAT image coverage (r.in.onearth addon script and/or r.in.wms).

all free,
