What is most concerning is that I have just read this headline on the Daily Telegraph website:

 *** Volcano ash chaos: previous eruption 'lasted more than a year'  ***

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/travelnews/7593716/Volcano-ash-chaos-previous-eruption-lasted-more-than-a-year.html

It also goes on to say:
The most notable previous example of Icelandic volcanic activity causing problems for Britain was in 1783, when an eruption at Laki sent a huge toxic cloud of sulphur across Western Europe, killing an estimated 23,000 Britons.

The cloud first reached Britain on 22 June and was followed by reports of a choking smog containing sulphur dioxide and sulphuric acid which attacked the lungs of its victims.

The amount of gas produced was enough to cause increase temperatures for a whole summer.

OK ....so DONT PANIC ....DONT PANIC.....

I'm picking up zero aircraft in 'MyFlights' (UK), except two Belgian Airforce F16's. They have both been up there appearing in and out of my polar diagram for about an hour now.

I bet our French radarboxers are having a field day. Currently watching on the network KLM Amsterdam-Canada flights transiting the northern coast of France to get to Oceanic (presumably southern) routes.
