Last year, lakagigar last erupted

in 1783, ultimately killing

Over 6 million people. The

ash cloud is beginning to

Spread east toward the

U.K. and Europe beyond...

Are these figure just


Yes, the eruption began

only 15 minutes ago.

And yet, it's exactly as we


12 kilometer high plumes, 2000 tons of ash

per second, the multiple earthquakes.

This is going to carry on for a few days,

we'd better start revising the model.

We'll need data from the

other sites as well.

Call the monitoring stations, I want

facts, before I call the authorities.

You really think this is it?

If the data holds to the

model, I think it is.

Oh really? Again?

What's up Perkins?

Isis erupted again. It's an

annual event, apparently.

First it was Ian, a year ago.

Then Greenverner.

And now lakagigar.

Wonderful language skills you got there.

Be careful, you'll get a posting there.

So how bad?

Probably the strongest yet.

It only happened about an hours ago, and

it had already reached 17 kilometers.

17 kilometers? You know,

that is really bad.

What's the spread?

Winds aren't too strong.

Alright keep me posted.

Oh one moment. What's

happening with that

little storm system in

the northwest Atlantic?

It's gathering strength.

Temperature is down 12 degrees.

Pressure is down

by 240 milibars.

If that crosses the ash cloud,

it would rather a mess.

Yes it will.

Alright, if there is even a possibility

of a major grounding, the sooner the

People know the better.

Spread the good news.

Will do cornel.

Thank you control. This is 165


What was that all about? An ash


Not much I hope.

Morava nb1765. Reduce altitude

to 30,000 ft. and report.

Roger that control. 1765,

reducing altitude.

Ah, there it is. The coast.

Ah, the septedial. This blessed


What's that?

Shakespeare darling.

Oh, right of course.

Lucky you are so handsome.

Why are they having you reduce


Oh, I'm sure it's just

an air traffic issue.

Control, this is 1765.

We are at 30,000 feet.

Roger, 1765. Stand by for

further instructions.

Roger that.

Four years ago my team

built a model predicting

Icelandic volcanic

activity and this

Morning's eruption hews almost exactly to

the parameters established in that model.

The amount of ash and lava,

the 5.5 magnitude earthquake.

Consequently, we believe the second

phase we predicted will shortly begin.

A series of linked eruptions throughout

northern and central Europe.

Oh god.

What we are going to see is the seismic

activity of one volcano triggering the next

Along the fault lines at the

edge of the tectonic plate.

I've never heard of such a thing. -You

cant be serious. -No no no no no

Germany, Italy, France,


It could be a matter

of days, if not hours.

Oh my oh no, dr. This is a

complete disaster, this can't be.

A disaster of this nature.

Your figures must be mistaken.

Please, please no one wants to

cause a panic, but you should

Begin making arrangements to move

people from the affected areas.

And what exactly are the

affected areas?

Approximately 83% of

the European landmass.

You ok right? I mean this isn't

a 747, champagne, caviar, and

All that fancy stuff.

No, this is fun. It's romantic.

Just the two of us.

Well my ex didn't like

flying in small planes.

Her loss. What about you?

Not wishing this was a fighter


I'll let you know young lady.

I've flew e-3's.

Right. You know what I meant. You

sure you don't miss the air force?

I don't miss the air force. I've had

enough danger for one lifetime now.

Now it's just quality time. Quality

romantic time with my new beautiful wife.

you're sweet. But you don't

have to keep selling. I'm already here.

I'm not selling. I just find

it unbelievable sometimes.

kids are going to love you.


They will.

Well, I won't take it personally

if they are resentful.

1765, you're on route

to Paris le Bourget.

Roger that control.

I'm afraid all non-emergency air traffic

is being grounded immediately due to

Atmospheric conditions. You'll

have to land at London city.

Control. We can be in Paris

is less then an hour.

That's a negative 1765, reduce

altitude to 25,000 feet and report.

Roger that control.

1765 reducing altitude.

I don't see any clouds.

It must be coming in faster then


Our temperature is dropping.

Look at the outometer

There is a barometric


May be it's just as well we are


You think the kids are going to

be ok?

They'll be fine. This must

be all over the news.

Still you should check in.

I'll give them a call when we


I wonder when that could

is going to reach us.

Hopefully not until dad and

what's her name get here.



Ok, so we have 4, we have 5 stops

until we get to gala Dulles.

No we got to take a bus to the


Or should we just take a train?


Hello? Ryan?

It's like the freakin' end of

the world coming. Can you stop

Being a perve long

enough to pay attention.

There is nothing perverted about

admiring a beautiful woman.

It is when you do it to every

single woman that walks by.

It's Paris. You know?

The whole reason I'm going to grad school

here is to experience another culture.

Right. And I thought cause every

single woman in America shot you down.

Anyway, it's probably not

the end of the world.

Just an ash cloud.
