Lutheran Air is always on call and when the sun goes down is no exception.
"We've been flying at night safely for quite some time. We've just taken it to a whole new level with night vision goggles," said Rex Alexander, a pilot with Lutheran Air.
The new night vision goggles magnify available light to make the eyes see things they otherwise couldn't see in the dark. Light is brought in from one end of the lens and amplified three to four times, turning the black abyss of night into a green field of clarity.
