Northern Lights

Northern Lights02

On March 8th 2012 I did a Delivery Flight from Boeing Field, Seattle to the UK. During that night the earth got “hit” by the largest solar storm in over 5 years. It was an incredible impressive view while we passed through the most Northern part of Canada during that night.
The aircraft was surrounded for hours by the most intense Northern Lights that I have ever witnessed while cruising at 41,000′.

A Delivery Flight is the flight from Boeing to the airline that has acquired that new aircraft. In our case our airline purchased this brand new B737-800 and I then flew it from the West coast USA to the UK in just under 9hrs.

It was hard to photograph as the Northern Lights are constantly moving and swaying but I still like the outcome of them!

 

 

 I even managed to record a short video:
