Airspace Layer: Thank you to Stein Sorensen (GPSDump) for making it very easy for us to add the airspace layers to Google Maps. You, sir, are a genius. And thank you to Matt Rosser for cleaning up the Airspace data and providing it for download. And thank you to all the boys that developed AirCheck for the inspiration to add an airspace layer to AusSPOT.
