Thats not a rant, i agree. It would be far too costly to speculate on very long flight delays and TPTB (maybe even more so during the elections) have to give the impression that they are in some sort of semblence of control.

IMO i think they will use this opportunity to 'test the water' for public response, whilst they wait to see if the situation will worsen and Katla will erupt too.

Here in Oxfordshire UK the sky is very blue, but you can definately see an almost dirty tint to the sky, we have had a very small amount of ash fall too. wonder how long this is going to last?

well, i'm not jumping to conclusions, just feels weird. This grounding operation is massive. Even weirder that even gliders ar prohibited to fly. Makes me wonder if this eruption is being used to do an emergency exercise of some kind.

Great, blue skies with no trails to block the sunshie for once and its really quiet like life was back in last 100 years or so. A unique time to experience the quiet skies and nature as it always was.

Strange to hear everyone speaking about a clear blue sky. But i have to admit and confirm that here over Belgium the same stuff is happening, a beautiful clear blue sky... Somehow it feels like the calmly silent before the storm

I understand your point, but let's be honest if this event was happening in the USA then it would be frontpage ATS, but because it's Iceland and by extension the rest of Europe, nobody cares. Well by "nobody" I mean Americans.

I'm not American by the way.


It's hardly surprising on American Top Secret. I've stopped starting threads myself because of this problem. If it's not America, then the bulk of the membership of this site couldn't really give a monkey's.

the same banks etc that triumph health and safety will make off falling stocks and hedgefunds. the air is clear have driven from france yesterday to uk today, clear south east uk now 12.45pm. also sat data shows the clound being x miles across, most flights would be fine. what happens as uk imports all food from abroad most on flights etc aswell cargo. food shortage possible.

Thank You!

I just found it rather spooky how alike they look and both are linked to air traffic. One is affecting air travel and the other is at an airport.

Probably till next weekend - winds will be bringing the ash more directly towards Britain next week.

Can't see that happening.

It will be gale force winds and snow this weekend. But only where gale force winds and snow were forecast: over higher hills in the Scottish Highlands

Hey guys,

I live in the south-east of England, woke up at about 9.30 this morning and there was a thick foggy haze as far as the eye could see. I've also woken up with a very dry and scratchy throat. I also woke myself up snoring VERY loudly which is a first for me! My 6 month old baby doesn't seem snuffly though.

Got a few texts from people asking if it was the volcanic ash we were seeing so I know I wasn't imagining things. It went after half hour though and it's flawless clear blue skies again

This might be a little off topic.. But I really enjoy having a blue sky! who needs airplanes when we have antigrav craft kept secret.
