One other tidbit -- a brief writeup in Chemical and Engineering News (4
March 1985, p. 26) on nitrogen/oxygen separation offers this:

	[A spokesman from Monsanto] suggests that units may be installed
	on such aircraft as the C5A transport to blanket fuel tanks.  At
	present, these planes carry tanks of liquid nitrogen and must land
	at a source of liquid nitrogen for every third refueling.

(Monsanto makes separators.)
