Grifthefrog,

I assume form your last post that you have never, ever flown over the sea at night, cos if you had, looking out can be very, very dis-orietating experience, especially in an oilfield with no moon, horizon and golfish bowl conditions.

Sometimes the platforms/rigs/boats look like they are above you and floating with the stars (and you at 1000 feet amsl)

Your post would be more relevant when over the land - IN VMC.

Thanks for your input.
