of all the aircraft ive been on he C-5 has the best airconditioning system. as for the photo's there we couldnt get the fog to quit it was just to humid. it was almost at full hot. and if you manage it well there is no problem of blowing the ducts off the water separator as long as the temp is above the freezing level. you should know that.

Funny you guys talk about blowing ducts and that sort of thing. Many times while working in the boiler room, with the a/c cranking (of course hell is colder than the envir compt) I would sit with my back on the water separator as I worked. It helps you stay a little bit cooler back there as you are slowly being cooked alive. One of my ELEN pals told me when they freeze up they somtimes break loose and take the mounts right off the floor. I wasn't aware of that, and I try to keep my distance from them now. I always tell new 3 levels that the water sep is a water/urine separator for the latrine, and that works to keep them clear! And of course most have heard about people taking the troop to max hot and melting the panels back there. Not a good thing.
