Video shows drone crash into erupting volcano in Iceland


(NBC News Channel) — Drone video captured the moment the drone crashed right into an erupting volcano in Iceland.

The stunning video, shot last week, brings the viewer up close to the shield volcano and right into the molten lava.

Drone operator and YouTuber Joey Helms said that being able to manually operate the first-person-view flying drone made it an immersive and unique experience, though the volcano’s conditions made it “tricky.”
