“Yet another new surface flow near the vent, nosebleed outbreaks throughout the flow field, ‘plenny’ lava streams entering the ocean and a huge crack in the lava delta indicating an imminent bench collapse!” said Tropical Visions Video photographer and videographer Mick Kalber, about Paradise Helicopters’ Thursday, July 27, 2017, Kīlauea overflight.

Kalber reported that the surface flow the crew has been tracking for the past couple months has progressed about halfway from the Pali to the Pacific Ocean.

Some pahoehoe breakouts were found on the coastal flats, but more were located above the cliffs, with the most active lava activity within a half-mile of the vent, where a new flow is making its way downslope.

“Extraordinary Paradise Pilot Sean Regehr made our documentation of the Goddess Pele easy!” Kalber said.
