    See that droptank on the center of the fuselage? Some droptanks aren't tanks, but instead storage containers. ;)

    Have you ever tried to work on a jet when it's 120 degrees outside (which means its about 140 at least inside the jet)? The guys that fly desks here might be, but there are plenty of us who actually do work.

    I was on the gulf coast in the UAE this summer, going back in February/March-ish. I work on tankers, no need to stick them way up front ;)

    To say the least. Gets so hot and humid almost feels like you can't breathe

    How often do you take breaks in that kind of heat, and how much ice-cold water you drinking? A whole gallon every half-hour?

    Well my job was pretty easy and we were doing two hour shifts on the flight deck. I am not sure ow much my camelback holds, but I would drink one about every 45 minutes to an hour. There are others that are on the deck much longer. Some people are up there for 12-14 hours coming down for meals and short breaks when they can. It's a very ****ty place to work at. The gulf not the flight deck..I actually don't really mind the flight deck:laugh:
