16th April 2010

MagicWeek issue number 511 for Saturday 10th April would have been late last week (as mentioned in my sign-off on Saturday 3rd April). Following a holiday I would have been back in the UK on Thursday, April 15th, and it would have gone live that evening. Then Saturday's edition (number 512) would have gone live as normal, on the Saturday.

Unfortunately Thursday's ANA flight from Tokyo Narita to London Heathrow only made it halfway - we took off at 12 noon (Japan time) but five hours into our flight the pilot announced that we were going to turn around and head back to Tokyo due to volcanic ash that was potentially heading down to Heathrow.

So, I'm doing my best to get back to the UK from Tokyo (hopefully Sunday) and will then be able to publish issue 511 and 512 back to back. I do apologise for the delay.

Best wishes, Duncan Trillo, Friday 16th April 2010.
