Air Con

Did you ever think airplane air conditioning could be so scary? Especially on a trip to the Philippines, where you're likely to be in dire need of good air conditioning?

Above, on a standard flight from Manila to Boracay, the Philippines' most popular beach resort, a passenger captures the airplane's "sketchy" air conditioning system. The passenger cabin floods with some sort of mist that looks like smoke.

Apparently this effect is common on small planes that fly in humid climates. Is that pollution or not? perhaps we can put up with that and worse every day but it doesn't appear to be bothering the dude in the video that continues to read a magazine despite the constant smoke screen.

On another flying note. Did you know that pilots are given 10 times more O2 than passengers. Try this -
