All flights are grounded

Everyone has heard that all flights over the British Isles have been grounded because of volcanic ash in the atmosphere. I visited London City Airport out of curiosity. It was like Waiting for Godot. Nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes. It’s awful. By contrast the Eurostar terminal at St Pancras is having a field day and so are the ferries to the continent. To think this strange situation has come about because of volcanic activity hundreds of kilometres away.

  1. Isn’t it wonderful? I have been living in South East London for years. The expansion of London City Airport and the use of larger nosier jets has made life for me and my neighbors a living hell over the last couple of years. It’s been amazing how many people I’ve been talking to have made comment on how much more they have been enjoying their environment since London City Airport & Heathrow have shut down. It’s really going to make more people aware how negative these businesses have been to their environments when flights start up again. I think Mother Nature took direct action over the whole of Europe to show her distaste of Aviation and the growing negative effect it has in her world.Long may the peace last!

  2. And if we get any more volcanic activity that paralyses the air transport then we’ll have to face the reality that aviation is not the way to go. After all, aviation is just a deadly a substance as plutonium. All it takes is one drop and you’re dead!
