“New skylights, a gorgeous pahoehoe flow above the Pali and an ocean entry lava delta getting huge!” said Tropical Visions Video photographer and videographer Mick Kalber, about Paradise Helicopters’ Thursday, June 29, 2017, Kīlauea overflight.

“Paradise pilot Rob Mitchell got us up close and personal with Pele,” Kalber added.

The 61g surface flows remain active both on the surface and throughout the tube system.

“Pele’s molten lava continues to pour into the ocean at Kamokuna, her flows rapidly rebuilding the bench,” said Kalber.

The lava delta is well over three acres in size now.

“Huge cracks near the sea cliffs belie its longevity,” said Kalber.
