Air Mobility Command C-5’s sit on the flight line at Naval Station Rota, Spain, April 17. Rota and Moron Air Base, Spain, absorbed many U.S. military flights that were diverted from Northern European Routes due to the airspace closure caused by ash being spewed from the Iceland volcanic eruption. Rota typically averages about eight to 13 flights a day but saw double that amount over the weekend. Moron, which is about an hours drive north of NAVSTA Rota, averages one or two flights a day. Over the weekend, it had about 10 times that amount. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Keith Meyers)
