Ken Hetge is a pilot in Tehachapi. He and his wife own ten planes that they rent out. Monday, all their planes will hit the sky to get a better view of the solar eclipse. He says by going above the clouds and bad air in Bakersfield, you get a better view. Some of his planes are even headed closer to the line of totality to see the eclipse in full.
