My Personal Eyewitness Account Flying Above the Eruption of Mt. St. Helens

May 16, 2020

View larger map ›

Geologists Dorothy and Keith Stoffel had chartered a Cessna flight over Mount St. Helens on the morning of May 18, 1980. As their plane flew overhead, the mountain began rumbling and suddenly erupted. Believed to have been the closest to the mountain during the time of the eruption, Keith Stoffel managed to capture the moments before and after the blast on film. Relive their first-person account of one of Washington State’s most incredible natural events.
