What a lovely day!

So was that perfect, cloudless, bluest blue sky the inevitable outcome of an
aviation-free couple of days? Or was it a coincidence?

Awesome April day wasn't it.

We spent the day down Ferry Meadows and then had a lovely BBQ at home around 18:00hrs.

Ban aviation I say !!

As far as aircraf are concerend quite a bit.

A few years ago an airliner flying over Indonesia flew into an ash cloud
from a nearby volcano. The cloud never showed up on their instruments,

They found out what happened only because all 4 engines failed and cut
out. The pilots only choice was to glide in and ditch the plane in the
water, hoping to avoid as few casualties as possible.

The plane fell 28,000 feet until at the last moment one of the engines
managed to fire back up giving enough power to get to the nearest
airport.

Scary stuff indeed.

Natural occurance.

OK, so for a while, less fresh tropical fruit.

Gives for glorious sunsets.

Enjoy the blip while it lasts.

And don't start on air travel as necessary for social economic cohesion, when we are ITC interconnected.

Just enjoy the zen moment.

I'm more concerned about talks of it potentially causing a nearby volcano to erupt also, though a lover of zen, I think this 'blip' will cause a myriad of knock on effects that will effect people. I enjoy benefits but also spare a thought for others in potential harm

Health, Employment, Families stranded etc
