Empty Sky Day


Volcanic ash from Iceland has stopped air traffic over Europe. No airplanes in the sky. What a uniqe day! There has been bright sunshine here today in Munich. The sky is however a bit hazy and it is not clearly blue – probably due to the ash in the air. Apart from that the sky has never been so clear.

I enjoyed the sunny day outside walking over Munich’s biggest flea market at Theresienwiese. Ironically I found some old German and British aeronautical charts and bought them for a few euros.

Here is a nice visualisation of daily air traffic in Europe to see what we are missing!
