Mount Beerenberg

Mount Beerenberg and a C-130 plane in take off

On this picture you can see mount Beerenberg (2277 m). This is the world northernmost active volcano, with the last eruptions occuring in 1970 and 1984/85. The first eruption added about 3 sq. km of new land (Nylandet). There is still smoke/vapor from fumaroles and fissures in the Central Crater , and on the northern side of Beerenberg.

Oh by the way, here are some other pictures from the Central Crater.

On the picture you can also see a C130 Hercules plane take off.
