This is not your everyday airliners picture....certainly one of my best flights of the year! The photo shows how close you can get to an active volcano; the Hughes is hovering over a molten lavafield....as you can see pretty hot down there! Incase of an engine failure they assure passengers that there is time enough to make a safe landing, away from the molten lava. Very comforting ;) our helikopter flew actually over that red crater, banking, so I could look right into it. An unforgettable experience!
