The Alaska Volcano Observatory has made available footage shot during their overflight of Mount Redoubt on 7 February 2009, showing the plume, fumarolic activity and evidence of glacial melting at the summit. The video (3min 47sec, 34.89MB) can be downloaded as a .wmv file from a link on this page on the AVO website, which also gives credits and other important details.

Members of The Volcanism Blog’s technical team have worked long hours to capture some interesting stills from the video, which are reproduced below. There are six pictures: the first is above the cut, click on ‘more’ for the rest. Credit for the video, and thus for these still images as well, goes to the Alaska Volcano Observatory and the United States Geological Survey.
