Iceland Volcanic Eruption
I know you can’t understand what they are saying – me neither but great pics.
I thought I’d better write a few lines on this eruption of Eyjafjallajökull. Here are some excellent links with some cracking photos identified by various people on the SLN forum.
Photos here are excellent
More photos here
Interesting satellite photos here too
The UK's air traffic control service (Nats) said no flights would be allowed in UK airspace because of fears of engine damage.
Some good up to date comments here including a nice one on the problems people are having pronouncing the name of the volcano!
If you really want the live action then how about a look at the webcams? Try this one here -or here
There is a nice BBC explanation here on why the planes cannot fly though this ash.
Nice maps here too
Finally for the moment how about a comparison with this old one?
