Post Iceland Volcano - Grimsvotn - Erupts
Iceland Volcano Erupts, White Plume Up To 18,000 Feet Seen: Report

REYKJAVIK, Iceland — Iceland's most active volcano has started erupting, scientists said Saturday – just over a year after another eruption on the North Atlantic island shut down European air traffic for days.

Iceland's Meteorological Office confirmed that an eruption had begun at the Grimsvotn volcano, accompanied by a series of small earthquakes. Smoke could be seen rising from the volcano, which lies under the uninhabited Vatnajokull glacier in southeast Iceland.

Iceland volcano ash cloud: UK flight disruption continues
All flights between London City airport, Heathrow and Scotland were cancelled this morning as the Icelandic ash cloud continued to hit air passengers.

Ryanair..... condemned the cancellations after operating what it described as a “verification flight” 41,000 feet above Scottish air space.

The no-frills carrier said that a post-flight inspection revealed no evidence of volcanic ash on the plane’s airframe, wings or engines.

“The absence of any volcanic ash in the atmosphere supports Ryanair’s stated view that there is no safety threat to aircraft in this mythical “red zone” which is another misguided invention by the UK Met Office and the CAA.”
