I too, will be on a flight from MSP-Mia. The plane will be situated over the total eclipse path during that time. what is the best side to sit on ?
I would say the right side, but you may have a hard time seeing the Sun, because it be high in the sky. Also, you will need eye protection, and other people seeing you look at the Sun will be tempted to do it themselves – and they will likely NOT have eye protection. This is a great risk.
