On the morning of August 21st, we dispatched a Kodiak from the Quest Aircraft headquarters in Sandpoint, Idaho along with our partners from Garmin Aviation with special equipment to record the total solar eclipse from the air. We flew south toward Driggs, Idaho at an altitude of 7500 feet heading 100°. Our film production friends at Kindnss came along to record this rare celestial event, which can be seen on our Vimeo channel linked above.
The Great American Eclipse is unique in that it swept across the entire country from Oregon to South Carolina at over the speed of sound. Our bird’s eye view captured the area around Southern Idaho and Wyoming as day turned to night and the sun’s corona blazed in the sky. Breathtaking!
