Volcanoes and airplane notes

Which volcano is this peak?

a) Mount Rainier
b) Mount Adams
c) Mount Saint Helens
d) Glacier Peak
e) Mount Baker
f) none of the above

A hint is this small active volcano was observed a bit before.

The answer is none of the above. The large volcano is Etna on the island of Sicily. The steaming island is Stromboli.

The flight and views makes one contemplate geologic risk and society in different circumstances. I was struck by the engineering that must have gone into the development of this valley.
