Before it gets dark wherever you live have a look out the window up to the sky and theres not a single vapour trail from an aircraft in sight.

Its Really Quiet to...Wherever we live theres aircraft noise all the time.

Its bloo*y nice to see the sky in its natural state.

Keep spewing your guts out Icelandic Volcano I say.

Sometimes peace and quiet is a wonderful thing...so enjoy while the winds are blowing the "right" way I guess! Soon enough things will be back to how it was......thats too bad!

From where I am in Iceland, I am not noticing a single thing and I am but a 1.5 hourish drive away!

I agree too Ben.

We're 8 miles west and very slightly south of Heathrow's runway centre-lines... and it's eerie. Reading is the center of the western 'Stack' and the marker for turning off base leg and onto 'Finals' for Heathrow.

Ahhhh.....

Peace and quiet....

Interestingly enough, lens and camera prices have risen slightly because noone can get the imports in.

I am near Southampton airport and the difference is great in both noise and sky. I know it's really bad for lots of people in lots of ways. I have been out for the day and really noticed the clear skys. It is the clearest night for a long time without the vapour trails.
I was having a think during the day.. aside from exhaust and fuel use by aircraft..... do the vapour trails (which expand considerably in the sky) add to any kind of artificial warming/ cooling.
I know as a part time astronomer they are a pain. I might get the scope out.... How thick is that ash? Smile .

We're on the approach to Manchester airport and the sky is usually full of vapour trails. We've just got back from a beautiful evening stroll under crystal clear skies. Fab.

Living at Heathrow-peace.
But the one thing that's missing,besides the aircraft taking off,is,they are not running them in on the runway which is a constant din.
All parked up like toy planes.
And the underground trains are running slack into the airport.No cases to fall over.

Love it! Nature vs Man Made (was actually a title of one of my photos)
back on the point, I know its not good for all those folk stuck, but it is quite ironic that against mans best efforts nature still prevails Grin
