Look out, oceans_edge, here it comes!

Spread of the Eyjafjallajökull ash plume. Looks like it's about to hit NS.


Full-size animation here.

Probably just high-altitude stuff, but still - the spread is pretty impressive. You can see why most of Europe is shut down. I wouldn't fly my jet engines through that grit...

John Cleese knows how to get around the ash just fine, apparently:

*grins*
not too worried...
a) by the time it gets here it's pretty thinned out
b) the altitudes the plumes are at are pretty much higher than your typical regional Dash8 flies
c) bigger problem is the yahoos I know are calling for Iceland charters - because we got a reputation as the Greenland charter experts
d) I don't do work for dem no more - it's all SEP now

P.S. Pssst - you got the wrong OE :)

Nice animation. Where is it from? It looks better than anything shown in the media over here.
