Why do farts in the cockpit stink?


The reasons why aviation farts smell in the cockpit.

Have you ever wondered why you fart while flying in an aircraft or why it stinks so bad? I recall a flight school student in the front seat of an Apache helicopter passing gas. His damn smelly fart found its way all the way to the back seat where I was. Unfortunately, I did not have a gas mask or eject button, nor could you open a window in an Apache. Can’t recall exactly, but assume he got a “U” (UNSAT) for the day. Anyways, the science behind why farts stink in cockpits is pretty interesting.
