A group of southern Queensland high school students affected by the European air crisis has flown to Turkey and will attend this weekend’s Anzac Day services.
The students and teachers from Goondiwindi High School, on the state’s southern border, are touring World War II battle sites but have been stranded in France because of the ash plume from Iceland’s volcano.
Teacher Mel Smith says they were put on the first available flight to Istanbul when the airport reopened in Paris.
“When we arrived at the airport all of the flight, all of the early morning ones, ours was the only one that was on time and wasn’t cancelled or delayed, so it was a big relief when we hopped on and you couldn’t even tell from the sky, there was no indication at all.”
