    I wish there was an volcanic ash cloud from Iceland every year !!

    It's lovely around where I am - I am not in the flight path for Heathrow but only live 5 miles from it and I have to say the air quality has improved quite a bit the last few days and it's just so quiet !!
    Long may it continue.

    This matter needs to be reported to the World Health Organisation. Clearly this ash cloud is having an adverse effect on rational thinking!
    (actually, my MIL is lovely too.... and is presently sitting in my lounge!)

    ... but those views are highly influenced by the proximity of his mother-in-law

    To be brutally honest...

    My "Mother Out* Law" is fine too, and she's nowhere near either!

    *Was 'In', now 'Out'.

    I would imagine that for many people living in the vicinity of an airport is through a necessity rather than through choice? The sudden tranquillity of closed airspace is obviously very noticeable. I live over an hour away from Gatwick on the Sussex coast, so no real noise pollution from planes, but at work, it is directly under some southbound flights departing the UK, and they are still relatively low in the sky when going overhead. I notice it quite significantly first thing in the morning. I guess if it is there all the time, you don't tend to notice it as you get used to it, but for it to suddenly not be there must be quite significant.

    I have lived in this area all my life [ apart from a years stint in North Wales ] & like I said I am not in the flight path, in fact I get more noise from Northolt than Heathrow. But the air quality is staggering better at the moment. I have just dropped one of my boys off to a party at Heathrow bowling and I have to say it was weird not having the constant noise of planes taking off and landing.
