We flew over Jolly harbor, then out over the sea.
While the weather in Antigua has improved, this was our first glimpse of Montserrat
We turned left towards the volcano, flying over the "rivers" of pyroclastic flow, that made the island bigger than it was prior to 1995.
We flew over the Plymouth, the former capital of the island and saw the devastation that volcano made in 1995 and 1996.
This is what's left of the the church.
The landscape in exclusion zone still looks somehow beautiful, although wild and rugged .....
Soon it was time to fly back. All the way back I was looking down at the sea really hard but couldn't spot any whale or turtle.
Maybe I was a little disappointed that we didn't see volcano puffing and spitting stones, but I was enjoying the flight immensely, more than I thought I would. It is not like flying on the plane, not even on a small one. It's much more fun, you are right in the middle of it, almost touching the trees and the rocks, with great view all around and feeling every sharper turn or acceleration. It was like riding in a cabrio through the air, and there was a smile on my face all the time. (Tomaz was laughing at my comparison, he said i am obviously missing my car :-)
On our way back we flew over Fort James.
