Actually it is a good idea for all pax to be facing backwards for the same reason.

The Brits used to have all airline pax seats facing backwards. In the USAF, if they put the pax seat pallets in the C-141s, they seats face rearward.

Hard to do that for the crew. :)




The AF had what we called an "Embassy kit." Sort of a pre-fab passenger cabin on pallets for the C-141, complete with seats, lavs, galley, etc. And the seats indeed did face backwards. No windows <G>.

It was used largely for civilian VIP transport.




They also installed just the seats for other users.

We did a deployment and for the ground support guys and stuff (and some pilots) they used a C-141 with one or two pallets of seats.

No lav, galley, or catering. :)

That doesn't stop the neck stretch issues. In fact, may make them worse.

See the other thread about HANS devices. :)




Concur!
