Actually the turnover of air in a modern airliner is quite rapid. THe entire volume of air in a wide body aircraft is replaced about every 10 minutes. Thats alot of airflow. There is also a recirculation system which filters the air within the aircraft. But I still like those little eyeballs. -- Brad Gillies Bradg@io.org http://www.io.org/~bradg/ Leading Edge Aviation Services Aviation Maintenance, The Backbone of Aviation.
