Iceland - Eyjafjallajökull Volcano Erupts

By Jalapeno  
I flew over the volcano today in a helicopter and managed to capture some photos of the latest volcano eruption in Iceland.

"Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull Volcano burst into life for the first time in 190 years on March 20, 2010. A 500-meter- (2,000-foot) long fissure opened in the Fimmvörduháls pass to the west of the ice-covered summit of Eyjafjallajökull."

Soon will capture the view from the glaciers surface and be able to hear and feel the powerful volcanic action.
