    I'm right behind them getting compensation - as long as they get it by winning a court case against God or by suing the church of their choice...

    Said by who? I've yet to see any scientific bodies saying this - only the airlines themselves...

    Wasn't that a Billy Connolly film.

    Just back from a hospital appointment, Sky news wa 98% about airlines, advertisments 100% airline adverts or long haul holiday destinations. Quite clever in a way.

    Unfortunately it's rather hard to filter a jet engine... they work by pumping air in the front, and throwing it out the back... If you put a filter over them that can filter granules of metal and rock that are not even 1mm across, it tends to restrict the airflow, which causes airplanes to rarely make it into the air, and more likely to fall out should they make it up there

    If you want an extreme (but possibly cool) way of looking at what would happen, get some iron filings, maybe some ground up stone/granite, and stick it in a blender till the blender gives up.... Maybe mix in some water too (since it's high altitude, full of clouds, and that volcano blew up a glacier ) and see what happens when you mix rock dust, metal granules, rapid changes in temperature, and water
