Bjorn Steinbekk has been filming the volcanic eruptions in Iceland for weeks. And for the big finale, he went out in a literal blaze of glory.
“This morning I concluded my 12-hour stream from the volcano. It was my way of closing a chapter that has consumed my life last 6 weeks or so,” videographer Bjorn Steinbekk wrote on his YouTube channel.
Steinbekk filmed the fiery-orange eruptions of molten lava that have consumed Icelanders and other onlookers worldwide for weeks, with unprecedented views from his drone.
In a ceremonious — and completely self-destructive — farewell, he piloted that faithful drone straight into the belly of the volcanic beast. And the footage is unlike anything you’ve seen.
Check out a 2-hour livestream of Iceland volcano flyover footage, which Steinbekk recorded with his drone on March 31, 2021.
