Airspace Rebooted – volcanic disruption – 2010

Northern European airspace visualisation via flightradar24

Credit to Itoworld and flightradar24.com for this impressive visual.

It really captures the key nodes and bridges of connections (apart from noted gaps e.g. France) for European travel.

It serves as a notable reminder to the disruption and clear skies that occurred as a result of the volcanic ash cloud from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano that covered Europe for several days in April 2010.

Some great pictures from the Boston Globe
