Amazing images have been captured after an Easyjet pilot did a 360 turn to give all passengers a glimpse of ‘incredible’ Northern Lights on flight to Manchester.
The easyJet pilot turned 360 degrees over the ocean on Monday night (February 27) to give all passengers on board a chance to see the ‘incredible’ Northern Lights.
Pictures taken by a passenger on the flight, which was returning to Manchester Airport from Reykjavik, capture the stunning hues of green, purple and pink across the sky.
Photographer Adam Groves, who had returned from an engagement weekend away in Iceland, said: “We had been half expecting them as the aurora forecast was high, but low cloud cover in Iceland over the past week meant we didn’t see them from land. We were hoping to see them while we were out there but didn’t get the chance.
Big thanks to the @easyJet pilot of EZY1806 from Reykjavik to Manchester who did a 360 fly by mid flight to make sure all passengers could see the incredible Northern Lights 🤩 pic.twitter.com/A4CHi9Hqgo— Adam Groves (@APTGroves) February 27, 2023
