Eyjafjallajökull volcano photo

My husband and a friend took off 10 days ago on a single engine airplane from the U.S. East Coast for Bern/Switzerland as destination.

They had to change their original flight route a couple of times due to bad weather in Maine and Goose Bay and then the volcano in Iceland.

They arrived in France (Brest) yesteday. He says, the airport in Brest is deserted. Their little airplane was the only one that landed. The engines and the cockpit of Air France and other commercial airplanes are covered with huge plastic sheets. He describes it as spooky!

Above is a picture from the volcano that he has taken and sent me yesterday. The distance from the volcano is about 100 km and the flight altitude is 17,000 feet.

It is ironic that volcano happens in a place that its name seems to be result of some kind of alphabet eruption: Eyjafjallajökull

Can you share with us what kind of plane they were flying? It seems to me that it must some nice one with a pressurized cabin. My cousin took that route on his plane a few years back.
