You're a pilot right? have you heard about this volcano in iceland that effectively grounded air traffic in the uk?

whats the damage the particulates can do to engines, and how exactly is there an ash cloud when its a beautiful sunny day here? is there anything can be done to mitigate?

i have pedals coming from the states and europe.. cry my GAS hurts...

looks like JLB is busy, but we used to fly the same type of plane! i'm an air force kc-10 flight engineer. we have a special section in our flight manuals, the 'adverse weather' chapter to be more precise, that basically says to avoid volcanic ash. here's why: http://www.boeing.com/commercial/aeromagazine/aero_09/volcanic_story.html

ah, so very not good then? No engineering solution to this? im imagining any filter (if you could filter a jet engine) that was fine enough to extract dust would retrict airflow also?

can't even use a filter to catch birds! the amount of airflow on a modern jumbo jet engine is huge.

The EU just had a look at safety levels for this stuff and they reckon the minimum dangerous level was 10 times what was in the atmosphere at the height of the disruption

no, the minimum safe operating standard (i.e. levels of ash permitted for flight) is 10 times higher than what was present. so we really shouldnt have grounded flights past the 3rd day
