It has no proper windows to speak of, but I managed to befriend the loadmaster, who got me into the cockpit for take-off. Quite by chance, there was a polar sunbow that appeared over this most dreadful and awesome of volcanoes. There is nothing that erupts new earth as close to the Antarctic pole, so to soar over it in peace was surreal. The white sun seemed to welcome everyone below and above.
