The ceasation of air travel in the UK has been unprecedented. There hasnt been a stoppage this serious. Even during the 9/11 paranoia there were more
flights moving than there are now. Its insane.
Furthermore, in Scotland they are/have experienced ash fall ( a light dusting) . Saw some folks on the news last night who were angry at the air
companies for closing the airports. They didnt understand that volcanic ash with silica particles is dangerous beyond insurable levels, and flying
through such weather could concievably result in death.
Further more, folks were complaining that they couldnt understand why, when the cloud responsible was in the north, they couldnt fly to thier
destinations if the airport wasnt covered by ash cloud. Again, idiocy . These people do not understand the merest slice of the trouble that this cloud
could cause a commercial jet plane. It disturbs me that there are people who either are so ignorant that they cannot understand basic mechanics , or
know what the danger is and think thier day going according to plan, is more important than them, and those they fly with living for a while longer.
