Ya mean to tell me they do not serve ice cream aboard the COD when flying in it?

Do you know how big the COD is?  I don't think you do.

Shoulder to shoulder, cheek to cheek. And temperature control is non-existent!

So, not even M&Ms are delivered when in the COD?

 >:D >:D











Guys, I was just pullin' your legs... Although never served, I can just guess how small a COD is. By watchin' an episode of JAG where the two primary investigators are in a COD, the space inside was not bigger than a bathtub...

Another episode involved a suspect standing in a COD menacing Harm with a gun. His cover has been blown and neither the pilot nor the carrier skipper (or Cdr Air Group) wants to allow the COD to take off. Harm requests the COD take off, suspect is thrown off balance... But I guess that would not have been possible, right? Not enough space to stand...

I type this as I duck behind desk as protection.

I've heard some of the Navy's best couples met aboard the COD.  >:D

Not a dumb question.

I think its psychosomatic (the sensation of being cramped). Only two small windows, open frame members all above you, etc. The seating is 2x2 with an aisle, and of course you can stand up to egress/ingress (which you'll get instructions on from the loadmaster). The seats are good standard 16g crashworthy seats, normal except in the sense that they're mounted the correct way - backwards. Plus, you're all wearing cranials, the height of Naval fashion this season.

If you're in the All Pax configuration.  Otherwise you lose about a dozen seats and gain a couple of pallet positions for "important" stuff like mail and coffee filters!

Y'all begin to get how I earned the "Spam" nickname from one of my instructors who marveled at my bulk stuffed into a cramped forward cockpit... at 6 foot 4 tall with big shoulders, I fit in small ejection seats "like spam in a can" per his words, which stuck. (You never get to earn your own handle).

Cheers,
"Jeff"
