    And when someone breaks our wings,
    we simply continue to fly... on a broomstick.

    We're flexible like that.

    Developments in volcanic ash affecting air travel

    >>>>>>>>>>>>SNIP
    The disruption is costing airlines at least $200 million a day in lost revenues, said Giovanni Bisignani, director general and CEO of the International Air Transport Association. an industry trade group. He told CNN on Monday that if flight restrictions continue, some small- and medium-sized airlines could be put in jeopardy.

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    I just thought of something that I haven't heard mentioned it all. Since this ash can damage plane engines, etc., what does it do to the people who are breathing it in??

    My granddaughter is in Security Forces (MP) in the USAF and is stationed at Pope AFB right next to Ft. Bragg in N.C. Her husband is an MP in the Army and has been in UAE for the last 6 months. Anyway, he was to fly in from outside of Dubai for his R&R. He was to be in tomorrow morning, and now because of this the soonest he can get out of Dubai is on the 22nd because of the flight changes. He is flying commercial.

    My granddaughter called last night and was complaining about it because she is so ready for him to get home for his R&R. I just pray that he will get home to her because she is so very excited, LOL. I would be also.

    I do hear on Fox News that travel should get back to normal soon.
    Thoughts and prayers for the people of Paris and all of France!

    I saw an amazing picture on MSN homepage of the lightening this volcanic eruption is producing. An amazing sight! I am not on my own computer or I would bring it here.

    LaLaw I hope GrSIL gets to come home very soon! Bless his heart. There's nothing like R&R time.

    I read on Drudge that there is another volcano next to this one that will be worse if it decides to erupt and it usually does when this one does. As for the question will the ash hurt humans or animals if they breathe it, the answer is yes, it is deadly and most farmers in the path are trying to protect their animals.

    It seems like I heard the ash may spread to Canada and I was wondering if it would come to the US. It is a terrible catastrophe.
    narrow, limited thinker, but I'm trying to grow
