Flight São Filipe - Praia, view to the E slopes and E coast of the volcanic island of Fogo, with the village of Cova Figueira shown near the left central bottom of the photo. The former island summit (Monte Amarelo) collapsed into the sea in prehistoric times, leaving behind the escarpment of the Bordeira (left margin of the image). The summit cone Pico do Fogo (2829 m), prominently seen in the centre of the scene, formed afterwards.
