  • Isn’t it quiet without aircraft noise today

    My, isn’t it lovely and quiet in the countryside without the infernal ever-present noise of jet engines.

    A cloud of volcanic ash is drifting over Europe from Iceland and has turned Britain into a no-fly zone. Can we have this every weekend, please?

    I’m sorry for everyone who is being incovenienced. That’s why I’d like no-fly to be scheduled for every weekend 😉

    That way nobody’s plans get changed at the last minute but we get our peace and quiet back.

    Each aircraft carries 500 passengers but the noise takes away a little bit from the quality of life of millions of people.

    Thank you Eyjafjallajökull

    As a public service here’s some aircraft noise if you feel in the need of a fix …

    As an added bonus we ought to be getting some great sunsets, unscarred by vapour trails. Clouds weren’t right today for that here.

    […] It’ll be interesting to stick a microscope slide outside tonight and try and catch some of this stuff and see if it looks like miniature sharp sand. It’s a shame that I didn’t try that when we had those lovely aircraft-free skies with the volcanish ash clouds from Eyjafjallajökull […]
