Members of the 642nd Combat Sustainment Group at Robins AFB, Ga., are redesigning the flightline air conditioners that are critical to keeping aircraft avionics cool while aircraft are parked on the ground in hot climates, announced Warner Robins Air Logistics Center officials Dec. 10, 2009. The current cooling units, like the one shown here, are designed to operate in temperatures up to 135 degrees Fahrenheit, but flightline temperatures in Southwest Asia can get as high as 140 degrees, which causes them to shut down, according to these officials.
