  • [QUOTE=fungus;52644]The Sangeang Api volcano, which is located off the north east coast of Sumbawa island, erupted yesterday evening.
    The Bureau of Meteorology says it has caused a volcanic ash cloud that is moving in a south-easterly direction, affecting the Kimberley and Top End.
    A spokesperson for the Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre says the ash is moving further south and dispersing.

    Gee those are fantastic photos - I've heard about the flying saucer effect but never seen a good picture of it. BTW - a well deserved win by NSW on Wednesday night from a card carrying cane toad!

    • "Darwin remains cut off to all air services until Sunday, and flights from Australia to Bali are now affected, as three separate ash plumes billow from an Indonesian volcano.

      The Sangeang Api volcano off the Indonesian island of Sumbawa is now erupting continuously after an initial blast on Friday afternoon, the Bureau of Meteorology's Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre in Darwin said on Friday.

      • Darwin flights resume as volcanic ash plume from Sangeang Api in Indonesia disperses

        Thousands of passengers have begun their journey home from Darwin after a volcanic ash cloud over the Top End grounded planes yesterday.
        Flights in and out of Darwin airport resumed this afternoon after the Sangeang Api volcano, located off the north-east coast of Sumbawa, began erupting on Friday night.
        The plume of ash spread over the Kimberley and the Top End forcing airlines to cancel most flights in and out of Darwin on Saturday and early Sunday.
        Thirty-one flights were cancelled, creating a backlog of thousands of people. Jetstar says about 2,000 of their customers were affected.

        • Indonesia volcanic ash cloud drifts towards Bali, causes more flight cancellations

          People planning to travel to and from Indonesia are being urged to keep in touch with their airlines as an ash cloud from an erupting volcano drifts towards Denpasar.
          The Sangeang Api volcano erupted on Friday, creating ash clouds that brought air services in the region to a standstill.
          Flights in and out of Darwin resumed yesterday afternoon, but Jetstar has announced it has now been forced to cancel flights in and out of Bali.

            • I got a notification earlier of a plane squawking 7700 from Belfast. ABR419J. The flight turned and headed to Cork to make a (emergency?) landing. Anyone with any info as to what happened? Here is the playback just before the turn and change in squawk.

                  Thank you, good call. When I searched the news the first night there wasn't a story yet.

                            Speaking after a Boeing 737 Jet2 plane declared an emergency after taking off from East Midlands Airport headed for Crete, an official for the airline said:
                            Flight LS625 is being diverted to Manchester Airport due to a minor issue.

                            Once landed, passengers will disembark and board an aircraft which is waiting to take them onwards to their destination in Greece.
