Australian airline Qantas launched a new scenic flight with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner to offer a closer look at the next super blood moon on May 26.
Fans of natural phenomena will be able to enjoy this experience aboard one of the aircraft with the largest windows of all commercial aircraft, with rates starting at $499 for the economy, $899 for premium, and $1,499 for business.
The “supermoon” is a natural event that occurs when the sun, the earth, and the moon align, with such precision that the shadow of the planet earth completely covers the face of the moon, generating a total eclipse.
The flight will last three hours. You will depart from Sydney and begin with a flyover of the city’s harbor before ascending to a cruising altitude of 43,000 feet to view the supermoon and full lunar eclipse.
Some experts claim that the sky will remain completely clear, so this phenomenon can be seen with the naked eye, and it will provide a better experience for passengers.
During the flight, Vanessa Moss, CSIRO astronomer, will be in the cockpit providing information about this great natural event, and everything related to astronomy and space.
It will undoubtedly be a unique and unforgettable flight experience and will be added to the list of “special flights” that Qantas has carried out in recent months while awaiting the recovery of the aeronautical industry.
