Mauna Loa’s summit Mokuaweoweo Crater eruption filmed probably in 1940 by Harold T. Stearns, a USGS Hydrologist-Volcanologist. The lava fountains are hundreds of feet high, the erupting fissure inside the crater is about two thousand feet long. The crater floor is at an elevation of 13,100′ ASL. Stearns is flying in an open cockpit at an altitude of around 15,000′ ASL.
Note patches of snow on the rim of the crater! At 1 min, 50 secs into the video, a plane will enter the lower right corner of the frame.
