Moment drone crashes into Icelandic volcano caught on camera

Global News published this video item, entitled “Moment drone crashes into Icelandic volcano caught on camera” – below is their description.

The stunning moment a drone crashed into the erupting Fagradalsjfall volcano on Iceland was caught on camera on May 24, with footage showing it fly into a tower of lava before the video stops.

Drone operator Joey Helms told Reuters being able to manually operate the drone made it an immersive and unique experience, but said the conditions around the volcano made it “tricky.”

The volcano, which is several miles from Reykjavik, began erupting in March after lying dormant for about 900 years.

In This Story: Iceland

Iceland is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic Ocean, with a population of 356,991 and an area of 103,000 km2 (40,000 sq mi), making it the most sparsely populated country in Europe. The capital and largest city is Reykjavík. Iceland is volcanically and geologically active. The interior consists of a plateau characterised by sand and lava fields, mountains, and glaciers, and many glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands. Iceland is warmed by the Gulf Stream and has a temperate climate, despite a high latitude just outside the Arctic Circle.

Iceland’ gained independence in 1918 and founded a republic in 1944. Although its parliament (Althing) was suspended from 1799 to 1845, the island republic has been credited with sustaining the world’s oldest and longest-running parliament.

Hit hard by the worldwide financial crisis, the nation’s entire banking system systemically failed in October 2008, leading to an economic crisis and the collapse of the country’s three largest banks. By 2014, the Icelandic economy had made a significant recovery, in large part due to a surge in tourism.

Iceland has the smallest population of any NATO member and is the only one with no standing army, with a lightly armed coast guard.

In This Story: Volcano

A volcano is a rupture in the crust of a planetary-mass object, such as Earth, that allows hot lava, volcanic ash, and gases to escape from a magma chamber below the surface. On Earth, volcanoes are most often found where tectonic plates are diverging or converging, and most are found underwater.
