    On this note - only slightly off topic - does anyone live near the air field in Brigg? I have a friend who is meant to be taking a parachute jump today but I don't know if the 'planes are flying or not. They won't be flying high enough to be in the ash cloud will they?

    Well... A light plane came down near here yesterday killing two occupants. It isn't yet know if ash was a factor.
    I've seen a few light planes over the few days, and the air ambulance once.

    I'm a few miles from, and off the flightpath to Southampton airport so they're never that bad, but it is nice to have none around at all!

    You mean Hibaldstow, I am around 20 minutes from there.

    I am also 5 minutes from Humberside Airport, to be honest I haven't noticed it been any quieter, you kind of get used to it. Haven't noticed as many helicopters going out to the rigs but yesterday when I did pass I noticed a few small planes looking to take off from Humberside, also as I write this post I am sure I've just heard a small plane go over.

    There seem to be more light aircraft than usual today.

    Yeah, the air ambulance has been over my house at least 4 times today.

    All is good - 'planes restricted to flying at 1,500 feet rather than the usual 2,000. Jump took place and a good time was had by all. Phew now I can breath

    It's great, until of course we want fresh fruit and the supermarkets start bumping prices up due to it taking ages to get any goods into the country and them running out.
