Many picturesque surface flows persist mostly above the Pali… and a lava delta at Kamokuna that resists collapse at all odds. First time up in the air with Paradise pilot, Paul Davis… we glided around Pele’s offerings with Leilani the Hula Girl, Navy Ducky, Bruce Omori, and Special Guest, Dave Coombes. Mahalo Paradise! Two weeks ago, the USGS estimated the bench at nearly seven acres large… our guess is that it’s possibly two acres larger now… and remarkably, still intact. Collapse is inevitable as the bench continues to slump… but exactly when is anybody’s guess. Rainy weather rendered the Pu’u ‘O’o vent inaccessible today. We continue working on our new “VolcanoScapes” series entitled “Hot Seat Hawaii!” Stay tuned for exciting well-known guests, engaging visits with interesting Big Island personalities… and of course, as always, the best Kilauea Volcano aerial lava video anywhere! Coming soon! You never know who might show up in “the hot seat” next! #HotSeatHawaii
