Shiveluch volcano churns up more ash- air flights potentially threatened

August 14, 2011MOSCOW – (UPI) — Scientists said ash continued to billow from a volcano in Russia’s Far East, which could have an effect on international air traffic in the region. The Shiveluch volcano on the Kamchatka peninsula was pushing ash as high as 6,000 meters (20,000 feet) and creating “light-intensity” tremors on the ground lasting as long as 40 minutes, the Far Eastern Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said in a written statement. No towns in the area were considered threatened by the ash fall. Shiveluch has been erupting periodically since 2009. The size of the mountain’s crater has grown 50 percent in that period, RIA Novosti said Sunday. –UPI

    ok, here are the three videos I made during the flight.

    The first is over the crater http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbBqRHEw8Iw

    The second is from the crater down to the river, where the logoon used to be. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCmK1_jKG-A

    Third video is flight along the river and then climbing and landing on the new hills (the first eruption last year ) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbNZf66TmJo
