An O V loop on July 25, 1999 flashed into sight above an active region, just as a CME was launched. It shows matter streaming in both directions around the loop - suggestive of a twisted flux-tube arrangement with counter-flowing streams.

And again on April 7, 2002 - we observe a similar format with a dramatic prominence eruption in above the South East Limb. The limb is to upper right.

As an added bonus you can view a short movie sequence of the April 7th prominence erruption.
