@zazuch, seems unlikely, the flat earth convition held for millennia had to be sorted with astronomical calculations. You sure it's not the cameras taking pics with a very wide angle lens maybe? Elevation seems necessary to see the earth horizon as is.

@Sutra46 You can be on land and your eye height is enough. You just have to have a large enough of a line of sight(talking miles like a salt flat(or the landing strip that the space shuttle use to land on etc) and you can see the curvature of Earth.
