A jet trail is visible behind the Olympiadorf, which was an amazingly rare sight in Europe on Friday. Most air traffic came to a screeching halt throughout Northern Europe, Eastern Europe and Russia; as Icelandic volcanic ash blanketed the continent. 15 of 16 German airports were closed on Friday, and Munich was the only exception – thanks to its Southern location. On Saturday, even Munich joined the mix – with nearly all flights cancelled. No telling how long the delay will last, but in the meantime millions of travelers have been stranded or are taking alternate means of transportation. This photo was taken between the arches of the Olympic complex, a design chosen because it was so unlike the Nazi era bold block construction. There has been construction going on for the past year or so (you can see the crane), but I’ve not been able to find information on what they are building. Anyone know?
