Alaska Airlines Delayed Their Flight So Passengers Could See Something Breathtaking

There are few experiences more beautiful and awe-inspiring than seeing a solar eclipse. It happens relatively rarely, and when it does, it’s truly a sight to behold.

And that’s exactly why this Alaska Airlines crew delayed their flight. They wanted passengers to see the majesty of the eclipse while they were in the sky. Fortunately, their efforts paid off. Check out the incredible footage below.

It was so nice of the flight crew to slow everything down for a while. There are some opportunities in life that you just can’t pass up. This was certainly one of them.

This Boy Is Going To Go Blind. See What He Wanted One Of His Last Sights To Be.

Ben Pierce is 9 years old and about to go blind. His eyes did not develop properly after being born prematurely. Before he loses his sight, he has some things that he wants to see. Thanks to Alaska Airlines pilot Chris Cice, he was able to see the Northern Lights, which was a must for little Ben.

After reading about Ben’s impending blindness, Cice decided to fly the boy for free up to Fairbanks, Alaska. He would be able to see the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, a beautiful light display like no other only seen in far northern regions. Take a look at how happy Ben was to see the lights and one of his dreams come true!

For more on Ben’s voyage to see the Northern Lights, check out the video below.

What’s next for Ben? How about the Eiffel Tower in Paris, or the pyramids in Egypt? Wherever he goes, I hope he can see how happy we all are for him.

They Tried To Record This Fox On A GoPro. Apparently, He Was Hungry.

When you leave an expensive camera, like a GoPro, in the wild, the point is for the animals not to notice. After all, the point is the capture footage of the creatures in their natural habitat. Besides, most animals wouldn’t care about a teeny, tiny little camera, right? 

Wrong. (At least when it comes to this smart little fox.)

While filming sea lions in Round Island, Alaska, a group of researchers noticed a fox approaching them in the distance.

Thinking he had a bright idea, camera owner and researcher Jonathan VanBallenberg “stupidly put [his] GoPro on the ground in hopes of getting a close-up.”

What Jonathan didn’t expect though was for the fox to make a snack out of the camera! “Hmm….tasty.”

Still munching on the camera, the fox decided to take his “meal” to go and drug the camera into the tall grass.

Luckily though he eventually gave it up, and Jonathan was able to find it… albeit destroyed.

Watch the full video here:

Although his pricey camera was shredded, Jonathan was a good sport about it, adding that he’s “glad the fox didn’t get hurt or swallow anything that could have harmed it.” All we can say is that we hope this fox found the lunch he was obviously hungry enough to eat a camera for. Otherwise, we’re leaving ours at home next time we’re out in the wild.
