Military aircraft and small private planes flying at low altitude aren't affected. It's above 5000ft that the threat lies. Just been to sutton park in Birmingham which is right under B'hams flight path. Normally very busy but totally silent deserted skies.

Planes wont be flying today until at least 7pm. www.google.com...

It was amazing to see the skies above kent totally free from any contrails that usually crisscross our sky. My heart does go out to anybody who has been affected by this. My brother runs an airport taxi firm so he has been directly affected. Have any ats members been affected if so what was your story.

Here is a vid I took on my nokia 5800 phone of the skies above Kent uk today. Also we are getting a thin layer of ash dust covering cars etc and actually tickling my throat causing me to occasionally cough as I am allergic to dust.

he dust really IS starting to settle: Scientists find particles of volcanic ash on the streets of Sheffield

Last updated at 5:34 PM on 16th April 2010

Particles of ash from the volcano in Iceland were today falling across Britain leaving cars and pavements coated in black dust.

Scientists from Sheffield Hallam University scraped up samples of the material and were later able to confirm that it had come from Eyjafjallajökul.

Dr Hywel Jones, consultancy manager of the university's Materials and Engineering Research Institute, spotted the dust on his cycle ride into work.Samples were collected from cars parked in Sheffield Hallam's Science Park.

I have a strong feeling that this is THE BEGINNING OF AN END FOR EUROPE. THIS VOLCANO AND PERHAPS MORE OTHERS SOON WILL MAKE EUROPE UNINHABITABLE.

If you're in Europe, I recommend you get out of there ASAP if you don't want to suffocate to death.
The ash will build up more and more, your water supply and livestock will be poisoned. famines, etc will follow. get out to Asia, Africa or North/South America. if you wait longer, they won't save you or accept you in their borders.

there are many prophesies of Europe being flooded and uninhabitable. Save yourself and your family before its too late and run away to another continent or Russia/Asia while you still can and while it's possible to cross the border.

Good luck.

Originally posted by dashdespatch why does this not apply to military aircraft they have been flying over me today in northamptonshire uk?


Because my friend, these pilots are highly professional, highly paid, highly motivated and probably ordered to do so!

Apart from that, they are not crap-hat civvies!

Isn't this country amazing?

First its heat, then floods, then snow, then the wrong types of leaves on the rails, then more snow, then even more leaves.

Now, its ash from a very large fire. All it needs is for a few very brave Icelanders - preferably some bankers, to go and pour some cold water on it to put it out!

that would make it worse. Its the volcano melting the glazier that is enabling water to pour in and create such violent ash /steam to erupt.

More news on the ash coating cars etc in the UK www.telegraph.co.uk...

ASH

The Met Office reported that ash from Eyjafjallajokull had settled over much of Britain, with a thin coating detected at its monitoring stations in the North, the Midlands and the Thames Valley.

It said: "Evidence of ash dust over the UK is being detected by Met Office observations and there are reports of dust reaching the ground."

The British Lung Foundation advised people with a lung condition to carry their medication as a precaution as they may experience short-term worsening of symptoms. However it stressed that the ash does not pose a significant health risk to the public.

There were reports lst night of cars as far afield as Heathrow and north Wales covered in a fine coating of the dust

Just seen on sky news Breaking now that the ash could reach the eastern coast of the US by 16:00 today. America brace yourselves for travel chaos.

Yeah. Sorry mate. I was forgetting my Fire NCO Training.

What I meant to say was:

Get some very brave Icelanders, preferrably bankers, to pour some AFFF down the hole.

When it mixes with the glacial waters -
- lots of foam! If THAT won't put the fire out, nothing will!

Do you just copy and paste this in every thread you can find?

On topic, thx for the vids. Wonder if/when this will affect the east coast of the US.
