An aerial view of the upper east flank taken at about 1100 local time on 24 June 1987 shows a lava flow traveling down the ESE flank. Incandescent lava can be seen at several locations along the flow, which eventually traveled 2.5 km from the summit. The snow-covered flanks are darkened by ash deposition from an eruption that began on 19 June.  Photo by Harold Wilson, 1987 (Peninsula Airways), courtesy of John Reeder (Alaska Div.
