No planes for six days
Some days ago, a volcano exploded in Iceland. The explosion made problems for millions of people.
The explosion sent ash into the sky. Planes cannot fly in ash. For six days no planes flew over North Europe.
People could not get home by plane so they went by car, boat or train. Their journeys were very long.
Some people were far away. They had to wait for the ash to go.
But it wasn’t bad news for everybody. Niamh is 13 and from Scotland. She says,“I was in California, America with my family. We stayed longer in California and I missed four days of school!”.
Did planes fly over your country?
Do you know someone who could not travel? What happened to them?
