GREENSBORO, N.C. - Pilots Wesley Parker and Bud Marshburn will have the best seats to watch the Solar Eclipse on Monday.
"We're going to fly down to Triple Tree in South Carolina so we can be right in the middle of the path just for the eclipse," said Parker.
It's about an hour and 30 minute plane ride from PTI Airport in Greensboro to Columbia South Carolina for just a moment of total darkness.

"It doesn't last very long," said Parker. "It only lasts for a few minutes once it gets totally dark and then it gets daylight again."
About 40 years ago, Parker says, he flew during a partial eclipse.
