Ryanair flies plane through Scottish ash 'red zone'

DUBLIN - Irish budget airline Ryanair on Tuesday flew a plane through Scottish airspace regulators say has "high ash concentration" in a bid to show there was no danger from a volcanic eruption in Iceland.
The Irish airline is a vocal critic of regulators' decision to close skies over Europe during an eruption last year, said in a statement there was no visible volcanic ash cloud and no evidence of volcanic ash on the airframe, wings or engines.
