Volcano costing airlines $200 million (USD) per day

If it's not their Banks then it's their bloody volcanoes! ;^)

Just the one aircraft up at the moment in the Highlands, doing some sightseeing I presume.  This one has already lost its engines ;)

With all the flight restrictions today I,m looking forward to a busy day of general aviation from Shoreham,Redhill and Biggin Hill airports rather than same old Gatwick and Heathrow.
Lots of new photo,s to download from the Air Britian site.

It's been flying steadily at FL9950.  

A Do228 at FL9950. Let's hope their pressure suits and helmets are working OK. :o)


Whoops...Excuse the typo error. Pressure suits would indeed be needed! LOL.

Just seen a helicopter flying about. Nothing unusual about that except he was flying round the volcano - all courtesy of the streaming vid. link suplied by Jim.

Thanks for that link Jim - it's rivetting stuff.

My mate in NATS tells me that it is highly likely U.K. airspace will be cloased until Wednesday. Also he said there is a possibility it could affect air travel for weeks.

With the lack of movement up here in Scotland I may fix a transpoder to a kite just to have you all guessing!
