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 !!
