The volcanic ash cloud from Iceland thinned out and has shrunk considerably over the past two days, freeing up flights and allowing airports to reopen across Europe and north Africa. But there are still some delays in Spain and Turkey.

Eurocontrol’s May 13 mapping (pdf download) of the ash cloud shows something like a Finland-sized boomerang coming off the east coast of Iceland, which is actually quite small compared to earlier this week.
