There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

@peter I'm sure that you heard that you've heard of this case:

In November last year, KLM flight 685 was supposed to fly from Amsterdam to Mexico City, and though the flight ended up taking around 11 hours as usual, the passengers didn’t end up in Mexico City, rather, they ended up in Amsterdam, right where they started. The Boeing 747-400 operating the flight turned around when it was already over North America, meaning it crossed the Atlantic twice. This was because Mount Popocatépetl or Popōcatepētl (Nahuatl for "Smoking Mountain"), an active stratovolcano in central Mexico erupted, the plane apparently had a cargo of about 2 dozen horses, and diverting to Canada or the USA would have created issues for the passengers, such as the lack of visas upon entry:

Located in the states of Puebla, Morelos and Mexico, in central Mexico, Popocatépetl lies in the eastern half of the Trans-Mexican volcanic belt. At 5,426 m (17,802 ft), it is the second highest peak in Mexico, after Citlaltépetl or Pico de Orizaba
