Drone footage captures the moment it crashes right into the erupting Fagradalsjfall volcano in Iceland.

The stunning video, shot on Monday (May 24), brings the viewer up-close to the shield volcano and right into the molten lava.

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