Peace & Quiet

While I am sorry for all of the people caught up in airports etc. the closure of Britain’s air-space for the last few days has brought some welcome peace and quiet to my area.

We normally get planes flying over every few minutes, now they are gone, it is amazing what difference it makes.

Once things get back to normal again, I imagine people living under the really busy flight paths are going to realise even more strongly what a blight air-transport bring to their lives.

I have to agree. Over in Bristol we get the LHR to US flights, as well as local stuff, but now: clear, blue, silent sky. It is what life was like before the planes came.

The other thing is the world has just got bigger. We can't plan on a long-haul holiday in July, as this could still be going on. I may have to cancel a May trip to the US. Now when we travel, it will be closer. Abroad has just got more exotic
