..hey, hang on a sec here, you're competing _against_ GPL 
http://earth3d.org/ (http://earth3d.org/faq.html) and favoring
Wintendo-only http://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/ !!! ;o)

..the best part here is we can use this scheme making our next
generation scenery, a photorealistic one.  ;o)

Cities can be done off http://mappinghacks.com/data/ too.


..I have one too; at 85MB, this aint what I'd call a plugin, but is it
GPL'ed???  Thin is the flight planner "plugin" for XPlane:
http://www.xpgoodway.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownloaddetails&lid=112&ttitle=GoodWay_3.1.0_Linux
And if it _is_ GPL, where is the source code URL???

  Scenarios always come in sets of three:
