More times than I care to admit, I've been foxed by the cache of my browser 
storing an old version of a page.  I suspect this may be the case with 
Mapquest, because I don't recall it ever having an aerial photo option 
before, but it does now.  I recently dumped my cache, so I didn't have to 
remember to hit "Refresh" or "Reload" to get a fresh copy.

This implementation is much better than some others, by the way -- the 
Microsoft site that attempts to match up topo maps and aerial images does a 
truly lousy job of finding the same place when you switch from map to photo 
or back.
