European airspace closing due to ash cloud

2010-04-15

United Kingdom airspace will be closed midday on April 15, 2010, due to a drifting volcanic ash cloud after an eruption in Iceland. Airlines are scrambling to reschedule flights and prevent passengers from traveling to the airport, particularly London Heathrow. Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Denmark and the Netherlands also announced the closure of their airspace, authorities in each country said. In all, around 3,000 flights across Europe were expected to be affected by the closures, according to Eurocontrol, the intergovernmental body that manages European air travel. NATS does not expect the airspace to reopen until at least 1800.

   This, though, has priacactl applications. There have been several incidents since I got my license where RDF came in handy; tracking a small planes ELT when it went down in a rural area and tracking someone who had been jamming local police channels. Not so much with LARP.

   And no I'm not Christian, just make sure you have the know how before snayig something. Islam is beginning to be more questionable to e, then Christianity. Modernization of Christianity is what caused it to be called a religion, it's not a religion, All true Christians are followers of the Christ, that's what they refer to their selves as, not religious. http://qtgkrc.com [url=http://oiwjywju.com]oiwjywju[/url] [link=http://dhwvqzcnufn.com]dhwvqzcnufn[/link]

   -_- From what I hear, Islam was created by the Vatican, no say smohteing idiotic please. rue religion Christianity was even before Islam. Why does it predate it, also, Christianity isn't even a religion, it spoke out against religions and Jesus Denounced religions leaders of his day, Muhammad received his revelations meditating on a mountain top, everything he explained from those revelations became the Qu'ran, really now, meditating to receive revelations? hmmm.

We were going to Egypt on 15th April, got to the airport, supposed to be flying at 9:25am, delayed until 1pm then they put a call out at 10:45am saying flight's been cancelled, collect your luggage, go home and come back in the morning for another flight at 8:25am.Watched the news for next 2 days and we decided to cancel and rebooked Majorca on 23rd May. We got a hoaidly in the end!

   It is very strange to see nothing in the air, at times when you sometimes see 10 to 12 aircraft flying over at 30000 feet. Now the skys are blue, no aircraft noise, no contrails, nothing. It feels like we are back when the brothers wright were trying there first attempts to fly. Hope it doesn't take much longer for all the people who are stranded on the airports. Regards Didi
