First Night of Chanukah - Legal Interpretation Question

I have a question of religious interpretation. I am roughly a little past Vancouver on a plane on my way to Japan. In a sense, I keep going "backwards" in time. At some point over the Pacific, I will cross the international dateline. When do I celebrate Channukah? Of course, when I do celebrate it, I will do it with a virtual candle lighting as I cannot light the real thing on the plane.

Will you end up "skipping" the first day of Hanukkah? I recall astronauts getting a ruling that they should use the time of the place they launched from. But that's different...
