The saga of PH-BUK is interesting. Now I know more about how to dismantle a jumbo jet. But the big tube is a (little?) mystery:)

Nice shot Tim. The air-conditioning packs are under the center fuel tank in the 747s. Obviously the air-con packs are removed, but the multiplex distrubution tube is probably the tube in question. They feed up and above the cabin, along the fuse wall where there are blanks (no windows).

Nice shot Tim.Big tube (silver) should be the air conditioning intake for the heat exchanger. Small black tube is the a/c distribution multiplex which I just posted.
