Quite simply because it's not flat.

I've flown to a height of 50K feet several times in the hornet, and with a 360 degree unobstructed view, I've seen the curve of the earth myself.

A few simple observations that prove it's a globe:
Sunsets/sunrises - sun should never touch the horizon if the earth was flat.
Lunar Eclipses are impossible
Coriolis effect
Different star rotations in different hemispheres - springbok didn't address this one when I mentioned it
The presence of a north and south magnetic pole.
Satellite imagery - springbok forgot to address that one also when I linked him the Himawari 8 satellite
The ability to journey to the south pole
Watching ships appear to sink as they sail away, much like that Toronto picture that springbok couldn't answer
All other celestial bodies are spheres

To name a few

I'm thinking that if you flew to space in the Virgin Galactic Spaceship
and took a pic of earth and it looked round you still wouldn't believe it,,

And how is it that none of the people who have flown to space
haven't said the earth is flat??
