We all know that moments like that solar eclipses don’t occur often, and that moments is one of the most photographed in the history. As a professional photographer, they feel a lot of pressure trying to make sure that they got the best shot. Carmichael prepared and made plans for this moments long ago, and he came up with the idea of the perfect place to document this moment. By studying the eclipse path carefully, the photographer realized that Southwest Airlines runs a flight from Portland to St. Louis that would put him in the perfect position to view the event.

Without thinking twice, this was his once-in-a-lifetime chance, and he had to take it. The photographer purchased a ticket and hoped that he’d get a window seat. Since Southwest doesn’t have pre-assigned seats, he’d even prepared himself to bribe someone to give up their window position if necessary. Luckily, it didn’t come to that. When he explained his mission to the Southwest flight crew, not only did they ensure he’d get a great seat, but the captain actually went outside the plane to clean the window for a crystal clear shot.

During the flight itself, the pilots circled a few times to provide all passengers with a spectacular view. Carmichael was ready for his big moment where he shot over 1,200 photos in two minutes and managed to perfectly capture the total eclipse over Snake River. It’s an image that Inc. calls “history’s most amazing photo.”

This time, we’re managing another big-screen wrongdoing. It ends up, the American entertainment world does barely anything to think often about precisely depicting different nations.
