21. Apparently VFR conditions, somebody on 'airliners' thinks like me

"A demo flight - circle a volcano, impress some folks on board (and make the pilots' job a bit more exciting that day as well) - VFR conditions - Captain wants a close up of the crater hence he is requesting to go to 6,000ft, knowing full well he has to pay very close attention to terrain - terrible misjudgment of situational awareness occurs and it's simply too late. They almost cleared a cliff though..."
