Description: From Miller and others (1998):"On September 4, 1987, a commercial pilot observed a narrow flow-like feature on the east flank that extended from the north crater rim at 1500 m altitude down to at least 1100 m, below which it was obscured by clouds. Steam rose 100 m above the flow (?) and the crater was vigorously steaming (Smithsonian Institution, 1987)."

Coombs and others (2008) note "A similar feature was observed from afar during field work in 2003 but we were unable to determine whether it was lava or debris flow."
