The first 4Aviation tour to Iceland started on Sunday 9 February. The aim of the tour was visiting the Iceland Air Meet 2014. Five of the eight participants gathered at Schiphol for the Icelandair flight to Keflavik. After flying for a couple of hours we were approaching the Icelandic airfield. Participant number 6 and 7 were picked up at the airport and soon after that the first aircraft of the tour was photographed; a Danish C-130 that was parked at the air base. After arrival in the hotel, and meeting participant number 8, we drove further into the country after evening dinner. We were hoping to see and photograph the Polar light (aurora borealis). We parked the car in the middle of nowhere, about an hour’s drive from Reykjavik, far away from any artificial light. The waiting in the dark paid off, we were able to see and capture the phenomenon in all its glory.
