Correct Option: 4  

Flying through volcanic ash
The flight, call-sign Speedbird 9, en route from Heathrow in the UK to Auckland in New Zealand was in the leg of its flight out of Malaysia when it flew through a cloud of volcanic ash thrown up by an eruption from Mt Galunggung in Jakarta. All four engines failed. When the crew managed to restart the engines - eventually - and land in Jakarta the metal of the plane and the "windscreen" glass was found to be severely abraded and the engines choked with ash and volcanic glass and rock.
