Why temperature's a hot topic for the RAF

"RAF personnel have to work outside in some fairly harsh conditions, much hotter than in the UK, and very often they're doing this for long periods. I measure the temperature outside several times a day and warn of the risks to those working."
Just as well they don't have to do any real work then...

And he gets paid for this? I clearly went to the wrong careers office then.
Of course, none of this has anything to do with calculating density altitudes so aircrews can calculate things like fuel, cargo and ordnance loads, safe takeoff and landing distances, speeds etc. etc...

What a bone article.
