Binter Canarias has canceled all flights to the island of La Palma due to the spreading Cumbre Vieja volcano. Three more towns on the island have been evacuated. The volcano has already destroyed hundreds of homes and forced the evacuation of nearly 6,000 people.

Nashville International Airport Holds A 5K On A Runway

Nashville International Airport (BNA) decided to celebrate the reopening of runway 2R/20L yesterday by holding a 5K run or walk for charity. To register for the event, runners each paid $40 and were guaranteed to receive a finishers medal and a commemorative T-shirt. Last year the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County decided to close runway 2R/20L. After being in operation for 30 years, the airport authorities determined that the runway had reached the end of its useful life. When they closed the runway to air traffic in April 2020, they assured airlines that it would not negatively affect air traffic. Nashville International Airport (BNA) has three other operational runways that it can use. The 5K run raised money for charities When speaking about the plan to organize a 5K run on the runway before it opened to air traffic, CEO of BNA Doug Kreulen said: “What a great way to have fun while raising funds for the Urban League of Middle Tennessee and the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.” Adding, “As we approach the 20th anniversary of 9/11, we wanted to pay tribute to the heroes who responded to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the loss of Flight 93. At the same time, we also want to celebrate the outstanding contributions of the Urban League of Middle Tennessee.” “We encourage the community to come out to BNA to run, walk or stroll down our beautiful new runway to support these organizations—and you won’t find a flatter course in town. Thank you to Hi-Way Paving, the general contractor, and designers Garver and Atkins North America for completing this $62 million project on time and under budget.” The Urban League of Tennessee works to help people in historically underserved groups with initiatives, mentoring, and other programs. The Tunnel to Towers Foundation helps provide first responders, veterans, and their families with mortgage-free homes. The race was sold out Touting the slogan “You won’t find a flatter course to run in Nashville,” the event was sold out with participants ranging in age from two years old to 78 years old. Earlier in the […]

Please note the below list of countries is not complete or exhaustive. There are some countries we did not cover in this post. (The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Denmark etc) Canada Canada is using two CC-177 Globemaster’s to rescue Canadian nationals and Afghan refugees fleeing the Taliban takeover. The first flight left Kabul airport late Thursday evening, carrying 175 Afghans and 13 foreign nationals. “The Globemaster’s are currently being reconfigured to carry the maximum number of people as safely as possible, and Canadian Armed Forces personnel are empowered to make decisions on the ground in the interest of saving human lives.” Department of National Defence spokesperson Jessica Lamirande.
