A drone pilot captured stunning aerial footage of an ongoing eruption of the Geldingadalsgos volcano in Iceland.

The volcano, which sat dormant for over 6,000 years, erupted on March 19, 2021, becoming the first active volcano in that area in 800 years.

Iceland Aerials says they haven't lost a device yet despite flying their drones super close to the bubbling lava.

"All drones survived, we melted the props once but were still able to fly it home while barely keeping it airborne with full throttle."
