At this moment in time, (1400hrs 01/04/2020) there are 1400 less planes in the air compared to this time last Wednesday.
@Daverc ..have to agree with you. Last time it was this natural and beautiful was during Iceland's volcanic eruption. That was a good 2 to 3 weeks of blue sky. Mother earth really suffers because of humans on its surface.

I guess I'm late catching up with this, but for anyone who hasn't heard - Dawlish Minor Injuries Unit is closed while this is going on: they advise using N Abbot MIU instead.
Google flights today shows over 60 flights leaving new York today for London and that's only returns leaving 1 April and returning 2 April.

@Scapegoat ....i do agree with you. To have a proper seal and test the mask for vacume and breath. Also having a clean shave and putting goggles on after you have established a proper seal on the mask. Also the correct type of mask and filters for the environment and that the filters are in date and still viable. Stay safe Scapegoat and all participants on Dawlish.com..that includes the web ...
