UK suspends military training flights due to ash

Britain`s Ministry of Defence says training flights in Typhoon fighters have been suspended after volcanic ash was found in one jet`s engine.



London: Britain`s Ministry of Defence says
training flights in Typhoon fighters have been suspended after
volcanic ash was found in one jet`s engine.
The decision came today, days after British airspace was
reopened to commercial airline traffic.

Military fighter jets are more susceptible to volcanic
ash than regular flights in part because their engines operate
at higher temperatures due to more extreme performance
requirements. That makes it more likely the ash will melt
inside the fighter engines and cause disruptions.
