An Easyjet pilot made 360 degrees turn over the ocean to show the fantastic view of Northern lights to the passengers on Monday Night, 27 Feb 2023. This flight takes off from Reykjavik, Iceland, to Manchester Airport. Passengers got a chance to see a bird’s view of the plane’s incredible lights, which are visible at night through the cloud breaks. In addition, passengers took pictures of the night sky, which was green, pink, and purple.
A Photographer, Adam Groves, was in Iceland for the week for the engagement. He expects to see the aurora forecast, but low clouds cover Iceland for over a week, and we missed seeing the view from the land. But when we took off halfway through the flight pilot turned off all the lights, and the show of the light was on the left side of the window, but I sat on the right side. So the pilot made 360 degrees turn from the plane to show the lighting view to all the passengers.
What is the reaction of Passengers to a 360-degree turn by a Pilot for the Northern Lights?
FlightRadar24 also recorded the flight path over the ocean for looping the aircraft. A Twitter user asked, “Can any pilot do it?” FlightRadar24 replied, “Pilots inform Air Traffic Control to ensure it’s safer to perform.”
Adam Groves, the flight passenger, said in his Twitter post, Big Thanks to the Easyjet Pilot for turning 360 degrees to show the incredible Northern Lights.
