First test flight since the ash cloud lands safely in Cardiff

UPDATE: Due to the amount of publicity surrounding the #ashcloud, an instructive video with the correct pronunciation of Volcano Eyjafjallajökull has been uploaded (above). 

A test flight from Heathrow landed safely just over an hour ago at Cardiff International Airport AFP reports.

British Airways’ chief executive, Willie Walsh was on board the Boeing 747 as it flew to test the impact of the volcanic ash cloud on the aircraft.

NATS (National Air Transport Service) have issued a statement through their Icelandic ash cloud dedicated website saying: “Based on the latest information from the Met Office, NATS advises that the current restrictions across UK controlled airspace due to the volcanic ash cloud will remain in place until at least 1900 (local time) on Monday 19 April.”
