Ashcloud from volcano on Iceland puts a stop to aviation.

<< < (3/3)

Sweden reverted to the same old question as usual. Who shall pay for the losses, the airlines or the government? Its mostly a blame game right now.

Many tourist are stuck and have to live at hotels for longer then expected. Ryanair is one company who said today, that they will not help their passengers financially due to the ash cloud-crisis.

Also, the Finnish Air Force tested  flying into the ash-cloud with both a HAWK and a F18 Hornet. Making tests to see how it affects the engines and components.

Forgot to add the link about the Finnish air force test.  I believe the photos tells the story, dont fly into volcanic ashclouds.  :)
