Random WOW: ' Most World Record Filled Town '

Smelliest Aeroplane

Aeroplanes, or airplanes are nowadays kept clean and tidy by the diligent and hardworking cabin crew who populate the steel, skyward-bound tubes.

However, in the 1960's, when the 'plane was nothing more than a plank of wood with a few wheels on one end, attached to a donkey, conditions were somewhat more basic.

Often, passengers had to flap their arms to generate more lift, and exhale in unison to lighten the weight.

But the worst aspect of flying was the smell. From the open sewers running down each isle, to the effluent-powered lighting system: it was utterly disgusting!

The smelliest aeroplane was the Boeing DogMark, the last of which was retired from service in 1989.
