Volcanic ash, which represents a potential severe danger to aircraft engines, continues to pour from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Under some circumstances the ash can damage jet engines and they will stop completely, creating the potential for catastrophic failures and accidents. For this reason many flights throughout Europe were cancelled yesterday and schedules remain in flux today. Flights around the world are affected by the snarled airline traffic in Eurupe.
As CNN Reports it remains unclear when the travel hazard will diminish enough for normal flight schedules to resume.
