After months of signs that the long awaited tephra dam collapse at Mt Ruapehu's crater lake

 was imminent it finally happened on Sunday March 18, at the time I was, amazingly, in Turangi, only 30

minutes away from Mt Ruapehu, a helicopter was quickly organized and within minutes I was in the air

above the lahar, extensive exclusive video was shot as well as the still photos above.

....under construction, video clips will be posted soon....
