If you are flying down the Med watch out for Mount Etna. If at night it is a sight to behold with the glowing red flowing. If during the day the ash cloud is visible from miles away. Last Sunday night I actually saw it erupting when we were over Palermo !! Without any doubt the most impressive scene I have seen in my 25 years flying !!

Just thought I'd share this with you.

Thanks for this post.

I'll never forget seeing Etna as we descended for an approach into Catania...what an amazing site. Also, Stromboli, I loved this volcano too, just like something out of a fantasy film!
