Eclipse historians inform us that the first attempt to observe a solar eclipse from an airplane took place for an aerial observation of the Great American Eclipse which traversed the entire continental United States on June 8, 1918. This first occasion was a simple flight into the zone of totality with no attempt at any scientific research.
2006 marked the 40th anniversary of the launch of Radio Hauraki, then a pirate station broadcasting from the waters of the Hauraki Gulf, near Auckland in the North Island of New Zealand. In November of 2006 the modern-day land-based Radio Hauraki in Auckland aired an 8 hour “special” to mark the anniversary.
