Spectacular drone footage of erupting Icelandic Volcano

Spectacular drone footage of Iceland's powerful Bardarbunga volcano captures molten lava and ash spewing hundreds of metres in the air

This video has no sound.
A drone captured molten lava and ash spewing from Iceland's powerful Bardarbunga volcano as it continued to erupt.
Aerial footage shot in September shows massive lava flows cascading down the side of the mountain. A look inside the crater of the volcano shows lava being spewed hundreds of feet in the air.
Icelandic authorities first became aware of this latest eruption in late August. Airspace around the volcano was closed, but officials said commercial air traffic was not affected.
The eruption first raised concerns because of one in 2010, when Iceland's Eyjafjallajoekull volcano erupted and sparked a week of international aviation chaos. Thousands of flights were cancelled when Europe's air space was closed for five days, fearing that volcanic ash could harm jet engines.
