a Ryanair 738 had to make an emergency landing at Tenerife South airport on Monday (11th October) due to flying through volcanic ash which caused issues with the engines! It was operating a Tenerife South- Brussels Charleroi flight.
Interesting piece and comments made. It will be even more interesting to hear further from someone once the aircraft has been examined fully and a decision made as to what needs doing to it before it flies again. I have looked every now and again at what FR24 is showing concerning the ash cloud from the volcano and it has been very much a 'moveable feast' as to where it has moved depending very much, as you would expect, on the strength and direction of the wind. I just wonder how up to date the TFS local information is and what information concerning flight paths etc is passed on to arriving and departing traffic.
