Statement: ash cloud of Eyjafjalljokull Eruption

Abstract: A small plane is flying around the ash cloud of Eyjafjalljokull. This footage was recorded on April 22nd, 2010, a few days after the second phase of the eruption started. The second phase of the eruption was in the centre of Eyjafjallajokull glacier. Although it was cloudy flying towards the glacier close to the center of the eruption the air warms up so much that clouds evaporate and you will get a glimpse of the slope of the vulcano. Interesting to note the visible soundwaves from the explosions in the final section of the film..somehow caught by the sun glinting off steam emitted as the volcano melts the surrounding ice cap.
