Hey!

I live in Denmark in the areacode 2400.

This is not too far from the Airport. The only thing I heard about this topic is from reading this thread quickly. I haven't seen any Volcanic ash anywhere, it was a clear sunny day today and no reports of it as far as I know And no one mentioned it at all.

Maybe the volcanic ash strictly is by the Copenhagen airport, and it not coming inlands.

Super interesting though. You say it came from Iceland? I must say, traveling all the way from there to Denmark is definitely something to know!

If I start seeing/hearing something, I'll be sure to give my input!

I must comment again and say that this is very wierd!

After posting, I remembered that my brothers wife is in Slovenia right now and is trying to get back to the UK but the tickets have not been received or something odd, and I'm guessing straight away that it is because of this "ash" which no one is seeing.

Wierd!

I live next to Ediburgh Airport, and let me say, very very wierd day.
We are used to hearing the roaring of planes every few minutes, and today, nothing.

Very very strange.

If the 2nd one goes (Volcano) it could be a nightmare here.

I have started a few topics, re : 2012 etc.
Today just makes me feel more, that something aint right with our planet. This right on he back off an 8.8 Earthquake.

....Watch this space me thinks.

Nah, you guys are right, here in the US, we don't worry about European news, unless a bunch of people get killed. Until someone dies in a big disaster from this, no biggie here. I think it's fascinating though.

West coast of Norway here, I cannot see the ash (it is unusually dark outside) but I can smell the sulphur in the air, not really pleasant smell.

Right over by Heathrow and right next to RAF Northolt. No flights tonight at all so far - not even the police chopper or the air ambulance (based in Denham) has flown

Very quiet night here indeed.

NATS obviously see this as a very clear danger - and having grown up around BA pilots all my life and being told of what happened over Mount St Helens i don't blame them. Its no conspiracy just pure common sense.

Sorry for those that cant fly - but hey things happen - could they fly the day the 777 crashed landed at Heathrow - no all flights were delayed. Or the day the IRA threw mortars at the permiter fence - no again they couldn't.

No conspiracy no foul in my book - just adequate and very sensible Risk Management - good call NATS and BAA

I live between Heathrow and Gatwick airport (Probably the busiest air corridor in the UK).

Have just spent half an hour in the garden looking up at a beautiful starry sky but with not a single plane in the sky. Normally you would be guaranteed to see at least 3 or 4 planes at any one time.

Have to say it is strangely peacefull if not a little weird to look up and see...just stars, no noise from jets. (a hark back to different days)

No ash but a slightly purple sunset.

All the posts saying "I,ve seen no ash!" well the inital part of the cloud is very high and very spread out but still deadly to aircraft, however as previously mentioned ash is now reported to be falling in scotland.

Will have to get the camera ready if it heads this far south.

Agree there nice to have a quiet sky to get the telescope out and look for satellites without confusing high flying jets !

If this happens with this volcano, imagine yellowstone exploding! West Midlands, no smells yet!

ye, to the people who cant see the ash, think of it like a big cloud of deoderant sitting at around 25000 feet ! ... your not going to see it !

the only think i have noticed , is that when looking at the northern sky, the stars are alot more twinkley than usual!


if anything, it would act more like noctulessent clouds (i think) and as we have very little moonlight tonight i doubt it will do anything visual wise.

There is nothing strange about those colors, I see them every sundown.
The picture that is the background of my avatar is a thundercloud lit by the sun during sundown, photographed last summer.

Ahh yes, and dont forget that if it isn't a satelite up there tonight it definately isn't a plane, so what could it be.....

Hi i'm 30 miles north of london (luton), heard about this ash cloud earlier today and immediately started looking for signs of it, we have had a really nice clear sunny days in the past few weeks with high presser in charge so it stands to reason, saying that i did notise it hazing over later in the afternone/eve it reminded me of the indian summers we sometimes get in september/october, but it was slightly colder.

sunset was really odd the sun looked huge and was bright red/orange really nice tho.

The airport is a mile from me (lLondon Luton International Airport) Flights have been suspended until 13.00 Friday 16th April,

There website has put out this messege:
"London Luton Airport would like to advise passengers and those meeting people at the airport that flights are suspended until 13.00 on Friday 16th April, owing to the ash cloud generated by an Icelandic volcanic eruption."

www.london-luton.co.uk...

It does seem everything is abit over the top and abit nuts right now as there is no huge plume over head and no reports of a funny smell in the air here, all tho i have been suffering from Hayfever really bad for the past week this ash cloud should it decent could make things like that 10x time worst as the pollen count is high right now,

Does anybody know how this would affect our weather/summer in UK & northern europe???
