The plume of ash from this eruption has diverted numerous flights in the north Pacific region, and has forced quite a number to simply return to their point of origin; they didn't have enough fuel to safely divert around the plume. The blogger who brought this picture to my attention, Eric Klemmeti, has been following the eruption regularly under the category "Sarychev" on his blog, Eruptions. (Home page; the previous link will take you to all the posts of this volcano and its convulsions.)
