AS 15

Got to finally see the northern lights last night on AS 15. We were somewhere over the midwest. Pics are from my phone so not the best quality but still pretty cool to me.

After reading the Eclipse thread on this forum, I thought it would be a great idea to include the AWESOME adventure in this thread as well.

OUTSTANDING and congrats to Alaska and the crew who made it happen.

Link to Alaska Blog with video and photos. Great background story on how the flight came together.

Not an AS flight but on takeoff from PDX when the heatwave and the Canadian wildfires plagued the PNW.
That is smoke and not fog with Mt. Saint Helens and Rainier in the distance.

Sunset with moon SEA-OGG.

Shot through the porthole in the galley. Would have been nice to get a shot through clear glass but the colors were dramatic regardless.
