Plane sailing

Perhaps prompted by Helen's pleas for a little more notice, a more agreeable email arrived last night, offering a flight on the 26th (of April, fortunately). So now there's time for a little more proper holiday - without feverish checking of web sites and the stress of wondering if and when it will end - and I'd guess things will be back to normal by then.

Shame it seems to be set to rain for the next couple of days...the weekend may be fine though.

So I went and checked the great circle route. That goes over Siberia and then northen Scandinavia.

Yup. We get good views of melting tundra and shrinking sea ice. There is no ash at cruising altitude anyway, it is just the take off and landing that was (thought to be) problematic passing though the ash layer.
