In this very week's Aviation Leak there is an article about
McDonnell-Douglas' proposal to convert the C-17 freighter to a civilian
version, the MD17.  One of the changes mentioned in the article is to
remove the inert-gas system.  Thus this system must cost enough so
as to repay the design costs of removing it.
