Video from an airplane ride around the big island, along with some commentary by me, recorded on July 10th, 2008.
There's a lot of volcanic activity right now, as you can see. A lot of active vents and fountains. Lots of water being boiled into steam as the lava meets the Pacific Ocean.
Some of the ride gets a bit bumpy, especially while flying through hot pockets of air rising up from 2000-degree lava.
Recorded with a Canon HG10 from a Cessna Caravan.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
