Volcanic activity has reportedly caused an extension of no-fly restrictions in Europe.
London (WiredPRNews.com) – Volcanic activity in Iceland has reportedly led to an extension of no-fly restrictions. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), although many are still unable to travel across Europe, winds have cleared enough ash for some scientists to be able to fly over it to analyze the conditions and make a determination regarding the length of the eruption.
Swedish pilot Axel Alegren is quoted in the report as stating of the circumstances, “I’ve been flying for 40 years but I’ve never seen anything like this in Europe… What we’re experiencing is very, very unique. Basically Europe is turning into a no-fly zone right now, like the U.S. after 9/11. It’s going to be chaos in the next few days but it will also be something that nobody will ever forget in aviation.”
