Landslide in Alaska - aerial views

In the past two years there have been some spectacular avalanches in Alaska.

The first happened in Icy Bay, and caused a tsunami estimated to have been nearly 200 m high.

The second happened earlier this year in Glacier Bay, a little farther south, and seems to have missed the water, but left a large deposit on top of the ice.

Here are a couple of pictures of the second landslide, taken about two months ago as I flew over Alaska.
