“Another gorgeous morning!” said Tropical Visions Video photographer and videographer Mick Kalber about Paradise Helicopters’ Thursday, April 27, Kīlauea overflight.

“A particularly outrageous overflight revealed numerous picturesque flows, now cresting the pali, and heading down the steeper slope,” said Kalber.

The Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō vent was particularly accessible and the lake within was very active.

The 61g surface flow has made it’s way to Pulama Pali, where several sizable outbreaks have begun oozing over the hill.

Pele’s molten lava continues to pour into the ocean at Kamokuna, but that morning, most lava flows were hidden by the plume on the lava bench.

About half the bench collapsed to the depths of the sea overnight early Thursday morning. Large cracks could still be seen in the lava delta, foreshadowing more collapses to come.

“We saw no outbreaks at all on the coastal flats,” Kalber said.
