See the moment a drone hits an Icelandic volcanic eruption


Drone footage captures the moment of a collision with Fagradal Sifort volcano during an Icelandic eruption.

A stunning video shot on Monday (May 24th) brings the viewer closer to the shield volcano and directly into the lava.

Drone operator and YouTuber Joey Helms told Reuters that the ability to manually operate a first-person flying drone provided a unique and immersive experience, but the volcanic conditions were also “unwieldy.”
