We report a detailed neutron diffraction study of both pinned and moving magnetic Flux Line Lattice (FLL) in NbTa and PbIn samples. In NbTa, the FLL presents a hexagonal lattice even in the absence of current, meanwhile PbIn presents a strongly dislocated phase. In PbIn, dislocations are eliminated by the application of transport current in agreement with theoretical predictions. On the other hand, the absence of curvature of the flux lines for subcritical currents confirm the presence of surface pinning of the FLL.
