Significant changes on the 61G flow field on March 8, 2018… still a number of small breakouts on the Pali this morning… but a very large flow was discovered within about a half-mile of the Pu’u ‘O’o vent. Huge plates of hardened pahoehoe lava floated on a river of lava snaking its way several hundred yards downslope. Spectacular! Raggedy Ann Ducky joined Leilani, Bruce Omori and me as Paradise Helicopters’ outstanding pilot, Sean Regehr flew us stealthily over the hot liquid rock… mahalo Sean!
And some pictures:
