Colima volcano, Mexico: aerial images 28 Feb 2015

A second overflight over Colima volcano was undertaken on the morning of 28 Feb 2015. Luckily, by the time we arrived at the volcano, circling the crater at 14,000 ft (4200 m altitude i.e. approx. 250 m higher than the crater), a phase of frequent small to moderate eruptions began that could be observed from close range from the windows of a small Cessna airplane.

Our pilot didn't worry about his Cessna flying through the remains of the (now very diluted) ash plume... sulfur dioxide could be smelled while passing the plume. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
