The picture above was sent earlier today from Neal Karlinsky, who along with producer Bonnie McLean, helicoptered into the volcano for an up close look at the ash cloud that has caused global travel chaos. The good news is that some planes will gradually begin to fly again in the affected airspace over Europe, according to a decision by the European Union transport ministers. The bad news is that conditions could change at any moment, and once again ground all flights. We'll have a full report tonight — including some amazing footage just 200 yards from the lip of the volcano.
