RR,

I would be a little concerned as turbine engines have very little tolerance for volcanic ash. And a couple of those spots didn't look real reassuring for autos.

Its just the telescopic lens making it look like the 206 is inside the crater, I was good 300-400meters away from the edge of it and of course upwind with partical separator turned on all the time.

Flight through Tower Bridge, London

After six months of negotiations with the CAA (they kept saying 'no', we kept asking 'why not'), an AS355 was allowed to fly through Tower Bridge during the making of the film version of Thunderbirds. It was Sunday morning in summer 2003 at sparrow fart.

And to prove it...........

Jumper monkeys, cute. In the military we used to call them 'meat bombs'.
