Thanks Richard for letting me have a peek through the 80ED - fantastic scope.

  13. Hi Alan, Only just spotted your post. Very interested in this, am in the North Lincolnshire area myself. Keep us posted. Thanks Dame.
  14. I've done one of the flights from East Midlands a couple of years ago. It was through Omega (no connection to them!). Pete Lawrence was onboard along with Nigel Bradbury who both gave commentary on the night sky outside the aircraft. Pete was also advising on camera settings to try and snap the lights. As part of the trip Paul Money and Pete Lawrence gave a presentation on the Northern Lights at a school before transferring to the airport for the flight. The flight lasted approx 2 hours and flew up to the northern edge of Scotland. All the interior cabin lights were turned off and the pilot managed clearance to turn the outside lights out too. As you can imagine on a plane and a small window it means shuffling seats with the other people on the same row as yourself, but nothing major with the reward of catching a view of the lights. I did manage to see a glimmer of the lights but not of a major display. A disclaimer was stated when booking and during the trip that they are a natural occurance and cannot be guaranteed.
