    Oslo Airport Gardermoen will probably be closed down at 10.00

    All air traffic in Norway is now closed down, and Oslo Airport Gardermoen is planned to be closed at 10.00 because of the cloud of ash from the Iceland volcano-eruption. VG News reports that only a resque-helicopter is in use right now.

    Have seen a SCW flight from US into Scandinavia, going south over Brussels and back north again over Germany.
    They expect the cloud also in Frankkfurt tonight.
    Last flights into Heathrow I have seen at 11:11 UTC, now I can´t see any plane.
    Area Amsterdam is still busy.

    Edit: Belgian will close airspace at 16:30
